Built to offer the very best in ocean luxury, and yet remain environmentally responsible, the MV Origin is a masterpiece of modern yacht design and now a leader in Galapagos exploration.

Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.

Hosting just twenty passengers in ten Staterooms, MV Origin is exclusive and spacious. The Staterooms all feature slick modern furniture, a private bathroom and either king or twin beds. However the highlight of the rooms is without doubt the breath taking panoramic views of the Ocean and the beautiful Galapagos Islands.

Dining aboard the MV Origin is a real experience. Whereas the delicious breakfast and lunch are served buffet style, for dinner, the chefs demonstrate the depth of their talents with an innovative menu, attaching great importance to the freshness and quality of all ingredients.

The various decks of MV Origin offer a wide selection of amenities should you be able to tear yourself away from the views. Allow yourself some time to relax in the four-person Jacuzzi or the library, stay active in the fitness centre, or soak up some sun from a hammock on the deck. When it comes to getting off board and exploring, there are five kayaks, two stand up paddle boards and snorkelling equipment to adventure with.

Departures of MV Origin are every Sunday from San Cristobal Island and set off on two distinct 7-night itineraries. The first explores the southern and central islands, while the second explores the north west islands. Both offer guests opportunity to spot unique wildlife and stunning scenery with the guidance of the experienced and passionate on board naturalists. There will also be a series of cultural experiences and guided on-shore sightseeing included in the cruise price.
