The MV Origin is Ecoventura’s 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. Wi-Fi is now available (additional charges apply).
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.
There are ten deluxe staterooms with large windows revealing the incredible landscapes of the islands and breathtaking ocean. Fine bed linens, climate controls and both memory foam and soft pillows ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. Measuring 145 square feet, there are two twin beds that convert to a King size bed, while nightstands and an ample sectional closet provide plenty of space for storing personal items.
Each cabin has a private bathroom with a dual-flush toilet, a sink, and a modern rainfall shower with ocean views. Plush towels, waffle bathrobes, slippers, hair dryers, and biodegradable hand soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner are provided.
Additional amenities include a vanity nook with a stool and lighted mirror, Apple TV with pre-loaded movies, a universal docking station, and a safe deposit box. Cabins are cleaned twice daily, and a light laundry service is available. There is a personal Espresso machine and tea kettle set up in every cabin.
All staterooms are located on the main (Beagle) deck. Two cabins have interconnecting doors, and two cabins can accommodate triples.
