Origin & TheoryGalapagos Islands , Ecuador & Galapagos
Castaway aboard the Origin & Theory on a captivating expedition through the marine-rich waters of the Pacific Ocean surrounding the archipelago of the Galápagos Islands. These luxurious expedition yachts accommodate up to 20 passengers each, which helps to provide a very personal experience versus that offered by a typical cruise ship. Each provides 10 light-filled, sophisticated designs and spacious staterooms. Staterooms feature fine linens, memory foam mattresses, climate control, and a cloud-like pillow to enjoy after a taxing day of new discoveries and activities.
Origin & Theory’s social areas include a dedicated library filled with literature on the discoveries made of the Galápagos Islands, a comforting lounge for evening lectures from the onboard naturalists, and a stylish bar to mingle with like-minded guests paired with hand-crafted cocktails, wine, local beers, and fresh juices.
Take seaside dining to new heights with the ever-changing menu provided, dishes served on board the Origin & Theory yachts shift to reflect what is freshly harvested from the islands, focusing on delicious and sustainable ingredients sourced from the island’s local farmers.
