Ecoventura pride themselves on conservation and guests who board this boat can be assured they are in the hands of a team that takes protecting the Galapagos seriously. Accommodating just 20 guests, the newest member of Ecoventura’s fleet offers everything you might want in comfort and style along with seasoned guides, clear bottomed kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and zodiac boats to explore the very best of the Galapagos. The luxury cabins have panoramic windows and are stylishly decorated. The main deck is spacious with comfortable sun loungers, hammocks and a jacuzzi to bask like sea lions after a day’s exploring as well as an open-air BBQ and indoor fitness centre.
The food is expertly and passionately prepared by the resident chef using local Ecuadorian recipes to remind guests of the mainland’s heritage. The MV Origin operates two comprehensive seven-night itineraries, departing every Sunday and visiting the spectacular outer islands of the archipelago. Guests can choose to follow the southern/central route or the northern/western route or combine them for a two-week journey visiting all the corners of the Galapagos Islands. Guests travelling with children may prefer to join a designated family departure, which incorporates age-appropriate activities for children aged 7 to 17.
