Medical and Trip insurances are not included in our programs and cruises but highly recommended. We suggest revising that Trip Insurances cover in any case of terrorism and natural disasters. Please make sure to always have proof of your insurance.


Travel agents, their Owners, Outfitters, Agents, and Employees generally only act as the agent for the owners, contractors, and suppliers providing means of transportation and/or all other related travel services and generally assume no responsibility caused for injury, loss or damage to person property in connection with any service resulting directly from: acts of God, detention, annoyance, delays, expenses arising from quarantine, strikes, thefts, pilferage, force majeure, failure of any means conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled, civil disturbances, terrorism, government restrictions regulations, and discrepancies or changes in transit or hotel services over which they have no control.


Reasonable changes in the itinerary may be made where deemed advisable for the comfort and well-being of the passengers and according to the Galapagos National Park regulations. The right is normally reserved to substitute boats for others going out on the same date with equivalent or higher class, alter the itinerary, and reverse the order of the places to be visited. On advancement of a deposit to an agent, the depositor therefore agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions.



We require a down payment of 30% of the total amount invoiced to secure the spaces and confirm the trip. The remaining balance (70%) is due 61 days before cruise/tour start date. If the cruise/tour is within 61 days, full payment is required to confirm your program.

Payments can be made via credit card, bank transfer, or any other payment method specified by Blue-Footed Travel. Any transaction fees or charges incurred during the payment process are the responsibility of the customer.
