Origin & Theory


Origin & Theory are two identical boats gliding through the waters of the spectacular Galapagos Islands.

The luxurious yachts both sleep 20 passengers and have been custom designed for sustainability and comfort providing guests with everything they need.

What we love about Origin & Theory

  • The 10 spacious en suite cabins, all with premium amenities
  • The large windows throughout which offer expansive ocean views and mean that wildlife sightings are rarely missed
  • The focus on sustainability – the owners of Origin & Theory were the first Galapagos operators to offset carbon emissions and to install alternative energy sources
  • The 13 crew members, each as friendly as the next
  • Wi-Fi to help guests stay connected
  • Adventure – with paddle boards, kayaks and a glass-bottom boat, guests will be spoiled for choice with ways to explore the Galapagos.
What to do at Origin & Theory

Explore volcanic remnants and rare plant life on Sombrero Chino Island. Visit the turquoise coves of Vicente Roca Point on Isabela and watch penguins at Tagus Cove.

Origin & Theory offer seven-night itineraries.

Get up close to hundreds of marine iguanas sunbathing on black lava rocks on Fernandina, before heading to Urbina Bay to sight turtles and rays.

Explore Moreno’s beautiful rocky shoreline where rare blue herons are usually spotted, then journey to Santa Cruz to hike into the rugged highlands where giant tortoises roam free. Santa Fe Island is a volcanic uplift hosting a forest of Opuntia and Palo Santo, where endemic land iguanas are often hiding.

One of the most incredible wildlife zones in the archipelago is Espanola Island – head to Gardner Bay to enjoy a magnificent beach, turquoise waters and a large colony of playful sea lions.

Origin & Theory

The Galapagos Islands are located approximately 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. There are direct flights from both Quito and Guayaquil.

to Travel

The Galapagos Islands can be visited year round. Winter is May to November when temperatures are lower and the seas are a little rougher. Summer is December to April, and the odd downpour is to be expected.

The sun is always strong due to the islands’ position on the Equator. Visibility is the same year-round, as are the quantity and variety of animals.
