The Origin operates two eight-day itineraries which take clients through the magical archipelago of the Galápagos Islands. Your expert naturalist guides will reveal the most wildlife-abundant islands, where a hike up the beach or over the volcanic foothills is sure to take you up close to some of the rarest creatures in the world. Explore the rocky coasts by kayak, stand-up paddle board or glass-bottom boat. This is also one of the best snorkelling destinations in the world, where the most unique marine creatures in the ocean reign supreme.
All cabins boast panoramic windows, perfect for wildlife watching, as well as private bathrooms. When you’re back from your day’s expedition, this vessel is full of tranquil spaces. Sit back on the spacious sun deck, perhaps a sparkling wine in hand, and watch out for the rare birdlife known to tails ships here. There’s also a Jacuzzi, wet bar and a barbecue area where you can swap stories with your fellow travellers as you soak up the warm sun.
