The only way to follow Darwin's footsteps in these famed islands is by boat, and the MV Theory does just that.

Property Details

The naming of the MV Theory takes inspiration from the famed biologist’s work, Theory of Evolution. The ship Darwin sailed through the Galapagos (the HMS Beagle) was not nearly as nice as this one.

Only 20 guests can travel on the MV Theory, making this an intimate experience exploring the wild and far flung Galapagos.

Panoramic windows (there’s even one in the bathroom) from one of 10 spacious rooms offer glimpses of the many unique islands. A minimalist color scheme of mostly silver, ash, and dusty grey tones complement white linens and subtle patterns. You will sleep like a baby on your bed’s luxurious linens. For maximum flexibility, each of the rooms can be configured with two twin beds or a king. Wrap yourself in a plush bathrobe after cleaning up in the rainfall shower decked out with penny tiles. All the bath amenities are biodegradable so you need not worry about damaging this fragile ecosystem.

Preservation and protection is top of mind on this vessel. The MV Theory was designed to cut back on fossil-fuel consumption and also features an eco-friendly wastewater system.

Dig into Ecuadorian cuisine on the ship’s sundeck. Vegetarian and gluten-free travelers will not go hungry thanks to special menus for their unique needs. Meals are plated over a four-course menu using local ingredients. Order a drink from the open bar, perfectly paired with a delicious lunch served alfresco. Snooze on the outdoor day beds as the islands drift by.

Set out on a glass-bottom boat, disembarking on an island inhabited only by sea lions, penguins, and tortoises. Knowledgeable naturalist guides lead small groups of 10 on nature walks, pointing out the tiny details of this world-renowned environment. Throw on a mask and snorkel in the water to go face to face with sea life.

The MV Theory is ship for travelers wanting to better understand this delicate habitat, all while ensuring they leave it in the same pristine shape that Darwin found it in back in the 19th century.
