Sister ships Origin, Theory & Evolve are small, modern luxury cruisers that have been expertly designed for sailing in the Galápagos islands. With a longstanding focus on sustainability, you can expect comfort, an expert crew and outstanding experiences both on and off the vessel.

These state-of-the-art, purpose-built luxury motor yachts 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 with pre-loaded films, Nespresso machine and personal safe. The cool décor is in contemporary grey with pale blond wood, enlivened with local works of art. Facilities include a large sun deck with loungers and a hot tub, 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 wet suit hire, alcoholic drinks or WiFi (the internet is limited to one device per cabin to keep speeds consistent). Attention to detail is a priority and you will have the services of a concierge and gourmet chef to maximise your enjoyment of the cruise.

Our Expert's Opinion

My highlight of this excellent Galapagos cruise was snorkelling with penguins, sea lions and turtles off Isabela island. It was also lovely to return to the boat for a soak in the Jacuzzi afterwards. A real once-in-a-lifetime experience.
