Where, how and when can I collect my tour tickets?
We send out all necessary tickets to passengers as scanned files via email, so all you ned to do is print them out and bring them with you. We will also send full instructions on how to join your trip.
Usually we aim to send tickets out between 1 and 2 weeks prior to your tour departure but this depends greatly on when we receive the tickets from the yacht operating companies so it may vary. If for any reason you need your tickets further in advance then please let us know as early as possible so that we can try to make the necessary preparations for you.
If you prefer to come to our office in person to collect tickets hen of course we will be delighted to meet you! Just let us know in advance so we are sure to have everything ready in time. Our address is:

prefer to pick-up my tickets in Guayaquil, how can I do
Again not a problem as we will scan the tickets to you, but please bear in mind that we will not be able to send any physical documents to you in Guayaquil.
4. ONCE I HAVE MY TICKETS IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT I NEED TO WORRY ABOUT BEFORE TRAVELLING?
We recommend that you check vaccination requirements with your doctor before leaving home, and also check any visa / passport requirements for travel with the Ecuadorian Embassy in your country; Happy Gringo cannot directly provide advice on these issues as requirements often change, it is therefore the responsibility of the tourist to manage this.
Another important step if of course to pack for your trip - in our FAQ we provide details for a suggested packing list before you travel.
