M.V. Evolution has 16 comfortable cabins that 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 and 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 snorkeling, 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. All cabins have a private bathroom with complimentary toiletries, air conditioning, and either a porthole or a window.

Join one of the M/V Evolution’s two cruise options for a marvelous 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 various 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 booking online.

Serviço incrível, barco ótimo, cabine barulhenta

O atendimento da equipe de bordo e dos guias naturalistas for excelente. Tudo funciona muito bem e a comida é muito boa com pratos variados e saborosos. Minha cabine ficava na frente do navio e eu acordava com o barulho da âncora porque navegamos sempre pela noite/madrugada. Quem pegou a cabine nos fundos do navio reclamou do barulho do motor.

Gostei muito. É muito caro mas não tem forma melhor de conhecer Galápagos.
