Galapagos Islands in November

November Weather & When To Go

November is the last month of the cool dry season, and temperatures are starting to rise a little. This is not the most popular month to travel to the Galapagos Islands, but it can be a wonderful time to travel, avoiding the business of Christmas and New Year.

Travel to the Galapagos Islands in November gives you the unique opportunity to swim with playful sea lion pups…

In November, the sea lion pups born in August are getting their sea legs, enjoying playing around in the nutrient rich waters. These brave little pups are a pleasure to explore the underwater world with, and the often curiously approach humans in a bid for a new play mate. The water is calmer now, and the visibility is good. For those embarking on snorkelling, you can also encounter marine iguanas, and penguins if you know where to find them. You may also encounter some whales and dolphins if your crossing over to Fernandina Island during your safari.

On land, it is breeding season for brown noddy terns, and band-rumped storm petrels start their second nesting period. Other birds you can encounter nesting and breeding are blue footed boobies, red footed boobies, and the larger masked boobies, as well as waved albatross and greater flamingos.

In regards to the weather, it is mainly cool and dry still, with a bit of mist and drizzle here and there.
