Ecoventura MV Origin
Galapagos cruising in sustainable luxury
For over three decades Ecoventura have been operating small scale, luxury cruises to the Galapagos Islands with itineraries carefully designed to show case the islands’ amazing wildlife, striking landscapes, magnificent marine environment, and fascinating history. As a family owned operator with top environmental credentials, they are tirelessly committed to offering the very best experience to a small number of guests whilst protecting the delicate ecosystem in which they operate.
MV Origin - Luxury Vessel
MV Origin is Ecoventura’s most luxurious vessel. Sleek, stylish and modern it has the essence of a luxury boutique hotel and every element of the yacht has been designed for comfort, safety and sustainability. It accommodates a maximum of just twenty guests in ten luxurious cabins, or ‘staterooms’, all located on the main (Beagle) deck. Spacious and airy, they boast stylish contemporary décor, individual climate control, plush bedding, private modern bathrooms and plenty of storage space. All cabins offer unobstructed views of the ocean with large windows revealing the incredible landscapes of the islands and breathtaking ocean. Facilities on board included a fully equipped gym, a sundeck with shaded day beds and a Jacuzzi. The well-stocked library offers plenty of reading material and briefings and enrichment lectures are delivered in the comfortable lounge. Every day expert chefs use fresh, locally sourced ingredients to produce a menu of gourmet cuisine and the elegant dining room features marble table tops and flexible configurations for private or group dining.
Itinerary & Activities
Ecoventura alternates two different 7-night itineraries to prevent over-usage of any sites but both itineraries are equally spectacular and showcase the
very best in the Galapagos’ natural history. If required, the two itineraries can be combined for a longer, two-week journey visiting every corner
of the Galapagos Islands. Whilst on board MV Origin you will be guided by two naturalist guides - one for every ten guests which is the lowest guide
to guest ratio in Galapagos. This ensures an outstanding learning experience and intimate wildlife encounters.
Each day, you will explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site on two guided land excursions with activities including walks along pristine beaches, hikes
on volcanic lava or tunnels among lush vegetation. Observe wildlife up close and unafraid of human visitors such as giant tortoises, land iguanas,
sea lions, penguins, blue-footed boobies and whales (seasonal). Explore the marine environment by Zodiac, glass-bottom boat, or while snorkelling,
kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding with all equipment provided on a complimentary basis.
Travelling aboard a sustainable, state of the art luxury vessel in comfort and style, a voyage aboard MV Origin is the very best way to experience the wonder of the Galapagos Islands.
