Evolution Cruise Ship, Galapagos

  • from US$ 694 / day

M.V. Evolution has 16 comfortable cabins that can accommodate up to 32 guests for an intimate and sociable Galapagos small ship cruise. Get to know the other guests over dinner in the indoor dining room or the outdoor dining area, and chat over a signature cocktail in the bar or outdoor lounge. The inside lounge is ideal for some quiet time, and you can grab a book from the library. Relax on the sun deck or in the Jacuzzi as you watch the sights unfold. Special dietary requests can be catered for with advance notice, with a hearty buffet breakfast and lunch served each day as well as a sit-down evening meal. Browse and buy a selection of items in the onboard boutique. The boarding deck makes accessing the water, for activities like snorkelling, kayaking, and getting into dinghies, easy. Retreat to your comfortable cabin at the end of each active day, ready to refresh for the next day ahead. All cabins have a private bathroom, complete with complimentary toiletries, air conditioning, and either a port hole or a window.    

Join one of the M/V Evolution’s two cruise options for a marvellous adventure in the Galapagos. Different dates cater to different interests; active departures feature more water activities and longer walks, family departures are ideal for taking the kids, and photo safari departures are perfect for keen photographers. The seven-night “In the Steps of Pirates and Darwin” departs from Baltra Island and finishes in San Cristobal, while the seven-night “Footsteps Back in Time” sails from San Cristobal to Santa Cruz. Each adventure lets you get up close and personal with an array of local wildlife, join in with exciting activities, and admire stunning views.  

The professional and friendly English- and Spanish-speaking staff members of the MV Evolution are waiting to greet you. Secure the dates you want and avoid missing out by calling us or booking online.
