  • To reach from the airport to the island of Santa cruz after leaving this channel $1 are paying. Switch to 10 minutes. Nothing special about the channel's old American airport with naturally separates the island.

  • I think that you might be thought of in another transport system that allows you to go to the airport. It is rather limited and doesn't seem very safe

  • Then only way here, ferry boats, they say. Fee at 1 usd. If you go by plane to the island of Santa cruz already have to pass on this channel.

  • The point where all the splendid journeys of Galapagos starts. Also the first view of the 'real' Galapagos. Etched in my memory.
  • The Itabaca channel separates the islands of Baltra and Santa Cruz, crosses it will always to enter or leave the Seymour airport.
