Every element of this decadent yacht has been specially designed for comfort, safety and sustainability. From spacious staterooms with panoramic windows to world-class cuisine and services, the Origin offers an unforgettable cruising experience matched only by the incomparable nature of the islands visited. The 10 staterooms are roomy and inviting, with large windows, private bathrooms and plenty of storage space. An elegant dining room features marble table tops with configurations of 2 to 10 guests for private or group dining. The spacious sundeck is equipped with day beds, chaises lounges, tables, hammocks, a four-person Jacuzzi, an outdoor shower and a wet bar.

Naturalists are all bilingual in Spanish and English, with other languages available upon request. The use of kayaks, stand up paddle boards, wetsuits, and snorkel equipment are all included in your cruise and allow you to get up close and personal with wildlife under the guidance of well informed naturalists.
