Best time to visit Galapagos: Water Smoothness and Temperature?

Jump to last reply

I read in Fodor's South America that the best months to visit Galapagos are May, June, November and December.

My wife gets sea sick easily. Would summer months such as July or August be too rough for her?

Also, we love to snorkel but the water temperature in Galapagos during their winter months seems cold. Is the water so cold during their winter that it makes it uncomfortable to snorkle?

Thanks for providing feedback on the roughness of waters and water temperature and snorkeling in the Galapagos.
