Galapagos Islands: origin-and-theory

Visit Us

origin-and-theory

These state-of-the-art, purpose-built luxury motor yachts, which launched in 2016 and 2019 respectively, set the bar high for luxury cruising.  Indeed, they are listed in the prestigious Relais&Chateaux portfolio. Commissioned by a company with many years experience operating cruises in the Galápagos, they have been thoughtfully designed with guests’ comfort in mind, but without in any way neglecting their 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 43m, environmentally-friendly yachts 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. Facilities include a large sun deck with loungers and a Jacuzzi, and a small glass-bottomed boat. Kayaks, snorkelling gear and wetsuits are available on board. As is not always the case with Galápagos vessels, all services are included in the price  so you don’t pay extra for entrance fees, wet suit hire or most alcoholic drinks (there is a charge for the patchy wifi and tips are discretionary). 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

Origin is an absolutely fantastic first class cruiser. Very spacious cabins, large dining area, huge sun deck, Jacuzzi, everything you would expect from a first class vessel, with one of the best guide/guest ratio in the Galápagos. Very well organised excursions. One of the best snorkelling trips I have ever experienced was at Devils Crown, just off Floreana.
