Itineraries

The MV Origin operates two unique comprehensive seven-night night itineraries, departing every Sunday and visiting the spectacular outer islands of the archipelago.

Itinerary A follows a southern/central route and itinerary B follows a northern/western route. The two itineraries can be combined for a longer, two-week journey visiting all the corners of the Galapagos Islands.

Each day, explore the islands on two guided excursions led by an expert naturalist guide. Activities include nature walks, zodiac rides, and snorkeling, as well as kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) opportunities.   

Designated family departures incorporate age-appropriate activities for children and offer discounts for children and teens from age 7 to 17.

Certain departures can also be combined with a week aboard our dive vessel, the Galapagos Sky.

Ecoventura alternates two different full week 7-night itineraries as required by the Galapagos National Park in an effort to better reduce usage on heavily visited sites. The order of visits may vary slightly depending on the yacht assigned.

SUNDAY: Fly to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (SCY) on SAN CRISTOBAL Island, and transfer by bus then Zodiac to the ORIGIN anchored in the bay.  After the welcome briefing and safety drill, a delicious buffet lunch is served on board.  In the afternoon, travel by bus to Cerro Tijeretas (Frigatebird Hill), one of two sites where you can see nesting colonies of both species of frigatebirds (Great and Magnificent), as well lava lizards, the medium ground finch and the San Cristobal mockingbird.  Walk along the trail to Punta Carola for scenic views, then return to the ORIGIN in the evening for a briefing followed by our Captain’s welcome party and dinner.

MONDAY: Go ashore this morning at Punta Pitt, a tuff formation that serves as a nesting site for many sea birds including all three types of boobies – blue-footed, red-footed and Nazca, both frigatebird species, swallow-tailed gulls, storm petrels, shearwaters and brown pelicans.  Punta Pitt is considered one of the best sites for birds in the archipelago, and is also home to a colony of sea lions. At Pitt Rock, we snorkel or swim with sea lions and colorful fish such as King Angel and Surgeon fish. Return to the ORIGIN for lunch.  Spend the afternoon at Cerro Brujo, a breathtaking white coral beach, with expansive views and good birdwatching.  Take a peaceful walk along the beach, swim with sea lions or use the kayaks or stand-up paddle boards. Enjoy a zodiac ride through a cave called The Cathedral before returning to the ORIGIN for a briefing followed by dinner.

TUESDAY: Disembark at Punta Suarez on ESPANOLA (Hood) Island, home to the greatest number of endemic species found in Galapagos. Sea lions bark noisy greetings as we land on the beach, while curious  mockingbirds peck at our shoelaces. Colonies of blue-footed boobies engage in sky-pointing to show off for potential mates. From April to December, the waved albatross, found only on Espanola, performs its wild mating ritual.  Other easily spotted wildlife are the Nazca boobies busily caring for their young, stunning swallow-tailed gulls, the only nocturnal gulls in the world.  We also find Darwin’s Finches, Galapagos Doves, red-billed tropicbirds and Galapagos Hawks, as well as a unique species of marine iguanas with traces of red and green colorings. Follow the trail to the dramatic ocean blow hold, watch for colorful sally light-foot crabs crawling along the shoreline.  Return to the ORIGIN for lunch on board.  Disembark at Gardner Bay, where large colonies or sea lions dot the seemingly endless white-sand beach.  Enjoy time to take a leisurely stroll or relax on the beach, watching for birds such as the Galapagos hawk, Darwin’s finch, or Hood mockingbird.   Swim with the playful sea lions from the beach, explore the bay and islets by kayak or take a Zodiac ride to explore the caves covered with invertebrates.  Admire the colorful array of underwater life at the excellent snorkeling site near Tortuga Rock. Return to the ORIGIN for a briefing followed by dinner.

WEDNESDAY: Step ashore at Punta Cormorant on FLOREANA (Charles) Island, where the olive-sand beach is alive with the sounds of sea lions, lava herons, yellow-crowned night herons, blue-footed boobies, and penguins.  Follow a trail to a brackish lagoon, home to Bahama ducks, common stilts, Galapagos flycatchers, yellow warblers and the greater flamingos. Wind your way past a rich variety of plants including the morning glory, cut-leaf daisies, mangroves (black, red and white), palo verde and scalesia. The trail leads to a beach where sea turtles lay their eggs in the powdery sand dunes and sting rays swim in the shallow water. After the walk, there is an opportunity to snorkel at Devil’s Crown, a shallow sunken crater colonized by a brilliant array of colorful fish and coral, white-tipped sharks, sea turtles, spotted eagle rays and sea stars.  Lunch is served back on board the ORIGIN on the sundeck, weather permitting.  Floreana is one of the ew populated islands in Galapagos with a rich and intriguing human history.  After lunch, visit one of the most famous sites in Galapagos, Post Office Bay, where a post barrel was erected in the late 18th Century for use by English whaling vessels.  Visitors are invited to leave a post card and to pick up any mail destined for their  home area. There is an opportunity to swim from the beach with sea lions. Late afternoon, take a Zodiac ride near Baroness Point to look for sea turtles and rays.  Return to the ORIGIN for a briefing followed by dinner.

THURSDAY: Disembark at Puerto Ayora, SANTA CRUZ Island, the social hear of the Galapagos, with a population of 24,000. Travel by bus to the highlands, passing through all seven vegetation zones found in Galapagos.  Visit a tortoise reserve, a private farm that protects giant tortoises in their natural habitat.  Stop at the largest lava tubes in the archipelago, and visit Los Gemelos, (The Twins), a pair of large craters.  Return to the ORIGIN for lunch on board. This afternoon we visit the Centro de Crianza Fausto Llerena (formerly the Charles Darwin Research Station).  Visit the tortoise corals and the breeding center with hatchlings and miniature tortoises that will be repatriated when grown.  Scientists from all over the globe conduct biological research at the station from anatomy to zoology. Visit the new exhibit honoring Lonesome George, a worldwide icon of conservation as the last surviving tortoise from Pinta Island that tragically died of natural causes.  Stroll through town to shop for souvenirs or stop at an internet café.  Return to the ORIGIN for dinner or, if you wish, remain ashore for dinner on your own.  Zodiac shuttles from ORIGIN to the main dock will be offered throughout the evening.

FRIDAY: Go ashore today at Sombrero Chino (Chinese Hat), a small island off the southern tip of Santiago that owes its name to its shape. After landing on a beach with colonies of sea lions, follow the trail to a primeval landscape of volcanic rubble including cracked lava formations and tubes. Marine iguanas and pairs of oystercatchers are commonly seen. Snorkel at a site frequented by large numbers of Galapagos penguins.  After lunch, disembark at BARTOLOME, a young Island is inhospitable to most plants and animals.  Climb the long wooden staircase to the summit of a dormant volcano, pausing along the way to marvel at lava bombs, spatter cones and cinder cones.  It seems as if we are walking on the moon!  The panoramic view from the top encompasses the entire island, including the distinctive eroded tuff cone known as Pinnacle Rock.  The crystal clear water below beckons for snorkeling with schools of tropical fish, white-tipped reef sharks and Galapagos Penguins.  Take a Zodiac ride along the rocky shoreline.  Return to the ORIGIN for the evening briefing and dinner.

SATURDAY: Today’s visit is at SOUTH PLAZA, a small geological uplift with tall cliffs where swallow-failed gulls, shearwaters, and red-billed tropicbirds build their bests.  The trail leads us through Opuntia (prickly pear) and Sesuvium, and land iguanas are seen here feeding on cactus leaves.  The island is also home to a  colony of bachelor sea lions, with dominant bulls in various stages of recovery from battles over prime beach territory. Return to the ORIGIN and snorkel between North and South Seymour in deeper water.  After lunch, go ashore at NORTH SEYMOUR, a small geological uplift to observe swallow-tailed gulls, blue-footed boobies and endemic land iguanas. Visit the largest colony of Magnificent frigatebirds in the Galapagos, and watch for marine iguanas and sea lions body surfing the northern swells.  Return to the ORIGIN for the Captain’s farewell cocktail party and dinner, followed by a slide show presentation.

SUNDAY: Travel by bus to the Interpretation Center on San Cristobal to gain a more complete understanding of the natural and human history of the Islands. Afterwards, spend time in port before heading to the airport for your flight back to the mainland.

SN = snorkel, KY = kayak, PR = panga (dingy) ride

Ecoventura alternates two different full week 7-night itineraries as required by the Galapagos National Park in an effort to better reduce usage on heavily visited sites. The order of visits may vary slightly depending on the yacht assigned.

SUNDAY: Fly to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (SCY) on SAN CRISTOBAL Island, and transfer by bus then Zodiac to the ORIGIN anchored in the bay.  After a welcome briefing and safety drill, a delicious buffet lunch is served on board. In the afternoon, travel to Cerro Colorado to visit Centro de Crianza Jacinto Gordillo (La Galapaguera) where the national park has established a breeding program for giant tortoises in their natural habitat.  At the visitor center, learn about the origin and evolution of tortoises, as well as threats from introduced animals. Along the trail, watch for the San Cristobal mockingbird and Calandrinia plant, both endemic to this island.  Return to the ORIGIN for a briefing followed by our Captain’s welcome cocktail party and dinner prepared by our chefs.

MONDAY: Spend the entire day on Genovesa (TOWER) Island, one of the most spectacular places in Galapagos for bird species. Land at Prince Philip’s Steps, where red-footed boobies nest in palo santo trees,  Nazca boobies nest near the trail, and storm petrels gather in large numbers in an open lava field.  With luck, you may see the elusive short-eared owl.  Return to the ORIGIN for a BBQ lunch on the sun deck. Chose to paddle from a kayak or stand-up paddle board and explore the cliffs. Look for the red-billed tropic bird hiding in the crevices or snorkel in deeper water from the Zodiac.  Land at Darwin Bay, a coral sand beach where swallow-tailed and lava gulls gather near the tide pools. Enter a forest of Optuntia cactus and mangroves where colonies of great frigatebirds nest, the males inflating their red-throated pouches to attract females as they fly overhead.   Chose to relax on the beach or swim with sea lions in these northern warmer waters. Return to the yacht for a briefing followed by dinner and an evening full of stars.

TUESDAY: Today we visit Las Bachas, (Spanish for barges) on the northern side of Santa Cruz.  Explore the long stretch of a white sand beach and the interior lagoons populated by greater flamingo, then take the opportunity for some wonderful snorkeling from the beach.  Return to the ORIGIN for lunch. This afternoon, step shore on Cerro Dragon (Dragon Hill) for a majestic view of the bay and the island landscape covered in opuntia cactus, palo santo and muyuyo (Cordia letea).  The trail also offers excellent opportunities to see Darwin’s finches, Galapagos flycatchers, yellow warblers, Audubon shearwater, as well as the endemic land iguanas, that were once part of the Station’s breeding program.  In the saltwater lagoon, pink flamingos feed alongside other birds such as stilts, pintail ducks and sandpipers. After the briefing and dinner, we sail toward the western islands and cross the equator for the second time.

WEDNESDAY: This morning we visit Punta Vicente Roca on a Zodiac ride offering an incredible view of the tuff walls, where we can enter the wave-sculpted cave. There is an excellent chance to snorkel here and find penguins and sea turtles that frequent this area.  During lunch, we sail through the Bolivar Chanel. Then take a seat on deck to view the dramatic scenery and watch for whales and dolphins riding the bow wave, and occasionally the Mola Mola, an odd looking giant sun fish.  Disembark at Urbina Bay on ISABELA Island, where four miles of coastal seabed were exposed due to a dramatic uplift during a volcanic eruption in 1954.  See the remnants of coral skeletons, some of them waist-high, and keep an eye out for the very large and colorful Galapagos land iguanas, as well as marine iguanas, Darwin’s finches, brown pelicans, flightless cormorants, and the occasional giant tortoise.  Return to the ORIGIN for briefing and dinner. A sky full of stars beckons to go on deck and observe the galaxy.

THURSDAY: This morning’s stop is at Punta Espinoza on FERNANDINA, the youngest and most pristine Island in Galapagos, with no introduced animals.  Recent lava flows formed by an active volcano stretch their way around the coast.  Observe sea lion harems with resident bulls carefully guarding their territory, and hundreds of marine Iguanas, the largest colony in Galapagos, basking in the sun along the rugged shoreline.  Out on the point, the Flightless Cormorants build their nests close to shore since they lost their ability to fly.  There is a chance to snorkel here with large sea turtles that frequent this area before returning to the ORIGIN for lunch.

Go ashore on Tagus Cove, a favorite anchorage for pirates and whalers over the centuries.  Sections of the rocky cliffs are covered with graffiti dating back to the 1800s.  An uphill hike leads to a saltwater lagoon and a scenic overlook with a spectacular view of the ocean, lava fields and volcanic formations.  Take advantage of the secluded cove and explore the shoreline by kayak or stand up paddle board in search of Galapagos penguins, boobies, pelicans and other seabirds.  Return to the ORIGIN for briefing and dinner as we cross the Equator for the last time.

FRIDAY: This morning, disembark on RABIDA (Jervis), a small Island considered the geographic center of Galapagos because its volcanic rocks are the most diversified in the archipelago. The dark red color of the beach comes from the high iron content in the volcanic stones.  Follow the trail to a saltwater lagoon where greater flamingos migrate, keeping an eye out for marine iguanas, mockingbirds, yellow warblers and Darwin’s finches.  Afterwards, do not miss the opportunity to snorkel with a colony of sea lions and rays.  Return to the ORIGIN for lunch.  This afternoon, there is a Zodiac ride at Caleta Tortuga Negra (Black Turtle Cove) through a series of coves and inlets surrounded by mangroves.  View pairs of mating sea turtles (Sept to Feb), white-tipped reef sharks and golden cow-nosed rays.  We return to the ORIGIN for the Captain’s Farwell cocktail party and dinner as well as a special slide show presentation by your guides.

SATURDAY: Disembark at Puerto Ayora, SANTA CRUZ Island, the social hear of the Galapagos, with a population of 24,000. Travel by bus to the highlands, passing through all seven vegetation zones found in Galapagos.  Visit a tortoise reserve on a private farm that protects giant tortoises in their natural habitat.  Stop at the Tunnels, the largest lava tubes in the archipelago, and visit Los Gemelos, (The Twins), a pair of large craters.  Return to the ORIGIN for lunch on board. This afternoon we visit the Centro de Crianza Fausto Llerena (formerly known as the Charles Darwin Research Station).  Visit the tortoise corals and the breeding center with hatchlings and miniature tortoises that will be repatriated when grown.  Scientists from all over the globe conduct biological research at the station from anatomy to zoology.  Visit the new exhibit honoring Lonesome George, a worldwide icon of conservation as the last surviving tortoise from Pinta Island that tragically died of natural causes.  Stroll through town to shop for souvenirs or stop at an internet café.  Return to the ORIGIN for dinner or, if you wish, remain ashore for dinner on your own.  Zodiac shuttles from ORIGIN to the main dock will be offered throughout the evening.

SUNDAY: Travel by bus to the Interpretation Center on San Cristobal to gain a more complete understanding of the natural and human history of the Islands. Afterwards, spend time in port before heading to the airport for your flight back to the mainland.

Passengers can disembark on Saturday in Baltra for a shorter, 6 night cruise. This is available on seasonal or peak departure dates only and not holiday weeks.
