MV Origin

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The MV Origin   dream boat, blending the best of tasteful design and decor, luxury amenities, and environmental sustainability. The 20-passenger vessel was custom built to maximize fuel efficiency and comfort, and incorporated feedback from guests collected over the company's more than two decades as a leader in Galapagos expedition cruising.

The 10 staterooms are roomy and inviting, with large windows, private bathrooms, and plenty of storage space. Our elegant dining room features marble table tops, with configurations from two to 10 guests for private or group dining. Lunch is generally served al fresco on our spacious sundeck, which is equipped with day beds, chaises lounges, tables, hammocks, a four-person Jacuzzi, outdoor shower and a wet bar. Our intimate indoor bar is always open for hand-crafted cocktails, wine, beer, sodas, juices, coffee, and tea.

Interior social areas include a comfortable lounge for evening gatherings and general relaxation, and a cozy library stocked with books on the Galapagos and Darwin.  WiFi is available (coming soon), and a public computer is provided for guest use.

The MV Origin also has a boutique offering high-quality local handicrafts, sundries, and gift items, as well as a fitness center equipped with a treadmill, elliptical, free weights, yoga mats, and more.

The experienced 14-member Ecuadorian crew includes a high-level captain, a full-time concierge, and two expert naturalist guides – one for every 10 guests, the lowest ratio in the Galapagos.
