Hyperbaric Chamber Fee
The Hyperbaric Facility is located in the town of Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz. The larger dive operators in Galapagos collect a mandatory $35 fee from each guest to keep the facility operating, staffed and with updated equipment. Treatment at the facility is not covered by the $35 fee. Divers must have dive accident insurance. Galapagos Sky collects this fee in advance of each cruise. The fee cannot be paid on board.
Gratuities for Guides & Crew
It is common practice to tip in Ecuador and to tip dive boat crew. We recommend 10% of the charter rate as tip/gratuity. An envelope will be provided at the end of the cruise, along with a Guest Comment Card. Envelopes and cards are placed in a locked box in the lounge area. Tips are divided and distributed equally amongst the Captain/Dive Guides and crew. Cash USD is preferred. Gratuity can also be placed on a Visa/MasterCard credit card. Please note that 2-4% is deducted from gratuities placed on credit cards for processing fees.
Our crew works very hard, we are sure you will agree!!
Credit Card Payments Made On Board
Boutique purchases, premium wines/beer/liquors and rental gear are paid the last day of the cruise. We accept cash (US Dollars small and large denominations), MasterCard or VISA credit cards only.
