During the meeting that took place on March 3, 2010 in the Galapagos Islands with the presence of the authorities of the Galapagos National Park, the Minister of Tourism, the Minister of Environment and Galapagos operators, it was decided that the implementation of the 15-day itineraries proposed by the Galapagos National Park will become effective on January 1st, 2012 (not 2011 as was the original proposal).

This will give ample time to re-arrange the itineraries of our vessels, yachts and catamarans operating in the Galapagos, so that visits to the same site are not repeated during a 15-day period, for a better handling of the "load factor" of each visitor site. During the next six months, itineraries and duration of each program will be defined.

Guests visiting the Galapagos Islands on expedition cruises, once the new itineraries have been estaclished for 2012, will still have the option of taking 7-night programs or even shorter itineraries –depending on the instructions issued by the Galapagos National Park in this regard.
