Three generations of our family had a wonderful adventure on the very comfortable M.V. Origin this July. The accommodations were great and the food exceeded everyone’s expectations including the allergy person.
The Origin was well-equipped and the staff extremely organized to support all the various activities which were led by the very knowledgeable guides Gus and Yvonne. Having two hiking adventures and two snorkeling/water adventures every day enabled us to see the wide-range of land and sea “creatures”, to learn about their evolution and habits, and to experience the different volcanic terrains that are unique to the Galapagos.
Highlights included swimming with the sea lions, snorkeling among so many fishes we felt like we were in an aquarium, seeing baby blue footed boobies being fed, courting by the wave albatrosses, sitting on the top deck seeing not only the beautiful sunsets; but being “courted” by frigate birds overhead, dolphins dancing through the waves, and sharks circling off the stern!
A truly great experience which we highly recommend!
