Galapagos Island surfing


Surfing can take place around any of the inhabited areas of the Galapagos Islands and only around them.

Only day trips are allowed, so that the conveniences of the local services have to be used.

Moreover, surfing is permitted only under the supervision of an official surf guide.

The most consistent surf is from May to December, unfortunately the water is colder at this time. However, being near the equator the water rarely drops below 18 degrees and the quality of the waves will bring warmth to your bones. Trade winds are lightest in January to April so plan your trip for this time of the year if possible.

Waves to check out are Carola, El Canon, El Tongo, and the Loberia on San Cristobal Island. Access to all the waves are made a lot easier with a boat charter.

Under the new regulations of the Galapagos Marine Reserve, surfing is permitted within the boundaries of this second largest marine reserve in the world, also included are kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, a group of environmentally friendly activities. Under certain conditions it is legal to surf near five of the islands of the Galapagos Archipelago, rules
