It is true that we were lucky and did the Galapagos in April. However, the experience is so fantastic that I would do it again any time of the year.LOVE your website. Have bookmarked it for future reference.
Keep in mind that the shore excursions are in the early morning hours and then again about four pm. So during the heat of the day you are aboard the air conditioned ship.

Because of my job, I think the only months I will have an option to take extended time off will be July/ August - has anyone been to the Galapagos during these months? Was it overly hot or humid?In July, the average temperature there is 75 degrees and in August it's 70 degrees. For rainfall, the historical average in July is one inch/month and 6 mm in August. However, if that's the only time you have available to go, by all means go regardless of the weather. I went with Quasar Expeditions (http://www.galaplagosexpeditions.com) and every day there were such amazing encounters and experiences that the weather was the least of my concerns.
