Origin Has Hit the Water

AUTHOR Caroline Eaton

MV Origin is officially in the water! Our team in Ecuador is working hard to prepare for the inaugural ceremony, taking place in Guayaquil next month and the inaugural voyage, set for February 28th.

Check out our newest video highlighting Origin’s first days in the water:

The final touches are being done on the cabins, and we are documenting with photos as they finish! Here are some of the most recent ones:

After a day of exploring, you can relax indoors and share travel stories with the other guests or attend a guide briefing in our lounge areas, bar and cozy library.  Our concierge is on hand to attend to your every need and ensure quality control.  With a crew of 14, the ORIGIN has the most favorable crew to guest ratio found in Galapagos.

Although you will be getting plenty of exercise with snorkeling and hiking in the islands, you don’t need to skip your workout with our Fitness Center located on the Finch Deck if you have extra energy to burn. The gym has a treadmill, elliptical machine, free weights, yoga mats, balls, blocks, jump ropes and stretching bands.  The ORIGIN is the only vessel in its category with a fitness room.

Our excitement grows as we begin the countdown until we are able to show off this beautiful new yacht in the Galapagos.  You can expect a high level of comfort and service while onboard the Origin. Our two expert naturalist guides are prepared to share their knowledge and first hand experiences, while our chefs are busy planning your culinary experience through the creative meals they serve onboard.  Whether you are reading in the library, exercising in the fitness center, or spending time with friends in the Jacuzzi, you are sure to find a comfortable way to unwind after an adventurous day in the Galapagos aboard the ORIGIN!
