The Galapagos National Park issues operating patents.

Each year on January 31, the Galapagos National Park issues all vessels in Galapagos a patente (permit to operate) with an approved lists any other authorized activity the passengers on that vessel can participate in at any given site. 

Some companies may be confused with dates and authorizations.

Our company is very careful to verify the exact points of the authorized activities before offering them to our passengers so that they have the best experience during their stay in Galapagos.
