See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature The Theory

Offering the very best in luxury ocean accommodation, the Theory - a member of Relais & Chateaux - is a winning combination of modern yacht design and environmentally friendly travel, and is a leader in Galapagos exploration.

Exclusive and spacious, Theory can host just 20 passengers in ten luxurious Staterooms. In between your Galapagos adventures, lounge in spacious rooms, all of which feature sleek modern furniture, a private bathroom and either a king or twin beds. The highlight of each room has to be the magnificent panoramic views of the passing Pacific.

A focus on sustainable, organic and local ingredients, sourced from island farmers, characterises dining onboard the Theory. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style, while the dishes at dinner showcase the chef's skills and the importance of using fresh ingredients to create a delicious menu.

The Theory's interior social areas include a lounge, where fascinating lectures led by the onboard naturalist take place. Disappear into the library, which is filled with texts dedicated to the exploration of the Galapagos Islands, or enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail at the stylish bar while mingling with other guests. If you can tear your eyes from the views, the decks provide ample room for relaxing. Snooze in the sun on daybeds, enjoy a dip in the jacuzzi or stay active in the fitness centre.

The Theory and her sister vessel, the Origin, offer guests two very distinct seven-night itineraries. Departing every Sunday from San Cristobal Island, the first itinerary option explores the southern and central islands, while the second explores the northwest islands. Both options offer guests the chance to spot the incredible wildlife and stunning scenery of the Galapagos, all with the guidance of the experienced and passionate onboard naturalists. There will also be a series of cultural experiences and guided on-shore sightseeing included in the cruise price.

Why We Love It

Lose yourself in the library, which is filled with texts about the Galapagos - the books are fascinating to read, especially while you are exploring the islands for yourself!
