Boutique Galapagos Yachts: Origin, Theory & Evolve
The three identical yachts Origin, Theory and Evolve provide intimate and exclusive Galapagos Cruises for just 20 guests. These floating five-star "boutique hotels" offer a refined experience by immersing travelers in life-enriching experiences with small groups, minimizing the impact on the delicate ecosystem. The elegant interiors are inspired by the calming surrounds of the Galapagos, creating a cosy, intimate setting.
Inside you’ll find comfortable and inviting social areas where you can relax and enjoy a drink or get to know the other guests. The open bar policy includes wine, beer, cocktails, spirits, juices, sodas, coffee, and teas, after-excursion gourmet bites and afternoon tea. Evening meals are a real culinary experience, served a la carte in the dining room. You can expect world-class cuisine with a focus on organic, sustainable ingredients from local islands farmers. Lunches are prepared on the bbq and served al fresco in the outdoor dining area.
The large sundeck is partially shaded and offers both day beds and loungers for you to soak up some rays. After a day of exploring the Galapagos you can also unwind in the jaccuzi and enjoy the endless views of the islands. If you are looking for some exercise, the fully equipped gym is at your disposal.
Equipment for snorkeling, kayaking and paddle-boarding is provided on board. You are also offered the opportunity to join the ships' unique glass-bottom boat for excursions along the Galapagos shores.
The double cabins have twin beds or a king-size bed and are located on the main deck. The rooms feature a private bathroom and full-length panoramic windows to enjoy the wonderful views.
