By the way, be prepared for some absolutely great snorkeling experiences. A few: playing with the sea lions, massive schools of anchovies that part as you pass through, the "sleeping" sharks, and swimming with marine iguanas. Enjoy your trip!
Very useful and thanks. What month were you there?
Best of luck on your cruise. You will love it. We leave in the morning for an Orient cruise, so over and out.
Most naturalists wore wetsuits even, just a few did not.
I'd deal with the hassle of bringing one if you are going this time of year.

We are taking a Galapagos cruise. The vendor supplies snorkeling equipment, but surprisingly, not wet suits. We have our own but do not want to be burdened with them for the 2 weeks travel preceding the Galapagos. Has anyone dealt with this? Would shipping our suits to the cruise vendor work? Or would the possible customs issues make it risky that we'd ever see our suits again? How about renting in the Galapagos? Thanks in advance.Not sure if you have been on your cruise by now, but we were there Ap. 2015 and the water was 87 degrees and quite comfortable for swimming without wet suits.
