All Aboard Evolve
"After a full day exploring the primeval islands of the Galapagos, coming back to Evolve feels luxurious, with plenty of space to relax."
Stepping aboard Ecoventura’s newest vessel, Evolve, I was pleasantly surprised by the substantial and spacious atmosphere, the yacht itself a lengthy 142-foot long. With only 20 guests, Ecoventura’s fleet – Origin, Theory and Evolve are among the most luxurious yachts operating in the Galapagos Islands and this was immediately apparent with plenty of space (indoor and outdoor) to relax in, allowing for both social and quiet time.
Cabins were very sizeable for a luxury yacht – you could get out of both sides of the bed – a rarity aboard most boats in the Galapagos. They had thought of it all: the crucial USB charging points; under bed storage for your suitcases; hanging spaces and drawers so you can unpack properly for your seven-night stay; bathrobes and slippers are provided as well as handcrafted Panama hats as gifts in your room; excellent Wifi and a small gym and outdoor jacuzzi.
It is impossible to go hungry aboard Evolve. Lunchtimes are alfresco enjoying the sunshine, sea breeze, and volcanic landscapes and dinner is a three-course affair. In between, there are snacks, coffee and drinks available, plus lovely, warming hot chocolate on return from excursions. I particularly enjoyed the canapes and drinks at sunset to close out the day.
