The Galapagos is Evolving with Luxury Yacht Cruises

Published: March 31, 2019

It used to be that if you wanted to see blue-footed boobies and giant colonies of sea lions sunning in the Galapagos Islands, you had to travel a bit as Charles Darwin did, on a research-style vessel whose creature comforts came second to up-close nature encounters. That's changed. The new wildlife-seeking crowd wants to see endangered species by day and then sip bubbly in an open-air jacuzzi by night. As a result, six new luxury yachts have debuted in the Galapagos in the last few months alone-with more coming. Two of the vessels-the over-the-top, 20-passenger M/V Origin and M/V Theory-are members of the prestigious, culinary-focused Relais & Chateaux collection.
