The climate is equatorial, cooled
by the Humboldt current. December to May is the better season when
the weather is pleasantly warm and the winds are light. From June
to November the weather is overcast and cool.
There are no Marinas in
the Galapagos, but all the visitor anchor sites are safe,
The water temperature around the islands is surprisingly cold and
the meeting of the Humboldt current and the warm air sometimes causes
mist over the islands. Occasionally the Humboldt current is replaced
by the warm El Niño current, a phenomenon which can affect
weather conditions throughout the South Pacific, more weather information,
please check our oceanography page.
