Galapagos Islands: Origin


Save up to £1000 per cabin>>
Special Offer:

This purpose-built luxury motor yacht, which launched in early 2016, sets the bar high for top-of-the-range cruising. Commissioned by a company with many years experience operating cruises in the Galápagos, she has been thoughtfully designed with guests’ comfort in mind, but without in any way neglecting her primary purpose, to offer a truly satisfying experience discovering the natural attractions of the islands. Indeed, there are two naturalist experts on board to guide and inform the 20 guests.

Accommodation on the 42m yacht is in 10 double or twin staterooms, all located on the same deck, with a triple cabin and others with connecting doors for families. Cabins are provided with a good range of facilities, including guest-controlled air-conditioning, TV, DVD player, iPod dock and personal safe. The cool décor is in the currently fashionable grey with pale blond wood, enlivened with local works of art. There is a large sun deck with loungers and a Jacuzzi, and even a small gym. Kayaks, snorkelling gear and wetsuits are available on board.

Attention to detail is a priority, and you will have the services of a concierge and gourmet cook to maximise your enjoyment of the cruise.

What our experts say

The company which operates MV Origin, Ecoventura, is a long-established favourite with us, not least because they have for decades been standard-bearers of eco-friendly practices and sustainability, so important in the fragile environment of the Galápagos.
