The charming Finch Bay Hotel

The Finch Bay Hotel has 21 rooms with  twin-beds, private bath, and hot water showers.  Every room is equipped with an electric ceiling fan.  The guest rooms and swimming pool are located only steps away from a sandy beach and near tidal lagoons, cliffs and cactus forests where interesting Galapagos wildlife can be seen.

We are proud to present the Solar Ray, our innovative solar/electric-powered skiff. 

We know that tourism takes a toll on the environment, which is why we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and preserving our unique natural surroundings with ingenious technological solutions.  We are pleased to be the first travel company in the Galapagos Islands to use this type of solar/electric, eco-friendly means of transportation.  Plus, we believe our new transportation boat will ease our guests into the Galapagos experience in a more harmonious, holistic way. 

Solar Ray - solar/ electric skiffThe new Solar Ray skiff has been fitted with 4 solar panels on its roof, as well as an electric charging system (we have also installed a power outlet on one of our service docks for this purpose).  Thus, the carbon footprint left by this means of transportation is minimal because no fossil fuels are used. Where the skiff previously required 2,912 to 3,640 gallons of petrol per year to be operated, it now requires 0!  That means our emissions are now 34 tonnes/CO2 less, which is equal to a year’s use of electricity of nearly 5 homes. 


As per established policies for some of the Galapagos vessel operators, a “Release of Responsibility” form must be signed by the parents or guardians accompanying children, under the age of 12, who are traveling to the Galapagos Islands.  

A printed document must be signed prior to the beginning of a stay at the Finch Bay Eco Hotel.
