Abercrombie & Kent is expanding its portfolio in the Galápagos Islands with its cruise partner, Ecoventura.
The company recently added Evolve, the third expedition yacht in Ecoventura’s upgraded fleet, collectively the newest and greenest in the islands. Carrying just 20 guests each, they are floating boutique hotels and the only Galápagos vessels accepted into the Relais & Châteaux collection.
Ecoventura’s fleet of three sister ships, Origin, Theory, and Evolve each offer a choice of 10 staterooms, with full-length panoramic windows and en suite bathrooms, complete with a rainfall shower with ocean view. Onboard amenities include a concierge, fitness centre, sundeck with loungers and daybeds, a Jacuzzi, and sustainably-sourced cuisine. All meals are a la carte and inspired by Relais & Châteaux, with four-course plated dinners and barbecue lunches.
The yachts rotate between two seven-night itineraries, Northern & Western Route and Southern & Central Route, which can be combined into a comprehensive two-week holiday.
There is a naturalist for every ten guests, one of the highest naturalist-to-passenger ratio in the region.
