INCA is pleased to announce the introduction of Wi-Fi aboard Galápagos luxury yacht INTEGRITY. The Marine satellite-based internet is available to all guests on a pay-per-use basis.
Guests will be able to connect from any wi-fi enabled device (smartphone, tablet or computer). The wi-fi signal is based in the main salon.
Guests wishing to utilize wi-fi will be issued unique access codes and usage will be billed by each code. Usage charges are payable on board by credit card at the end of the cruise.
The rate is $18 per Megabyte (MB), available for purchase in the following increments:
- 1 MB ($18)
- 5 MB ($90)
- 10 MB ($180)
Usage is based on the amount of data sent AND received.
Please note marine satellite-based internet is extremely slow and is best suited only for text-based emails. It is NOT suitable for streaming video, transferring images or large files, or posting to social media.
The following are examples that provide a rough approximation of how much data usage is consumed by the following activities. Actual usage will vary based on the file sizes sent and received.
- 10 emails sent/received without any attachments or images = 2.5 MB
- 1 email with photo attachment (at low resolution) = 10 MB
- 3 emails sent/received with text-only attachments = 12 MB
- 5 web pages (with no videos) visited = 25 MB
- 10 social media posts (without pictures) = 14 MB
Parents/guardians will be responsible for all usage by minors.
