After you book your tour, you will receive a detailed packing list with your departure packet. Most yachts do not have a dress code so casual clothes are fine. Bring shorts, swimwear, sunscreen, and a sun hat for the days. A long sleeve fleece or sweater and long pants are advisable for the cool evenings on the water.
Bring comfortable walking shoes and sandals, or other shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Make sure to bring plenty of film, batteries, and personal toiletries, as it’s impossible to get these items on the uninhabited islands. Most itineraries will include a stop at the small town of Puerto Ayora on the 10-day tour where travelers can access an ATM, souvenir shops, etc.
Travelers may also want to bring their own snorkeling gear (if they have odd sizes, prescription masks, or prefer their own equipment, etc.) and a light wet suit for the colder water season.
