The M/V Origin is the newest and is arguably the most comfortable premium-class yacht operating in the Galapagos archipelago, combining modern sophistication with high quality guiding and accommodating 20 guests. The 142 foot M/V Origin is owned and operated by a local company who are one of the oldest and most experienced in Galapagos. Drawing on their experience they have custom designed the yacht to create the ultimate Galapagos cruise vessel. Each of the 10 cabins is on the main deck with large picture windows, and can be either a twin or with one king bed. Gourmet style menus, including Ecuadorean and Peruvian specialities are offered with culinary-school trained chefs. The group sizes are a maximum of 10 guests per guide which is smaller than most other yachts offering a very intimate experience with nature in great comfort! As well as the classic Galapagos activities of hiking, snorkelling and kayaking, the Origin also offers the option of stand-up paddle boarding and viewing underwater life from a glass bottom excursion boat.
