Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Theory cruises around all the top sights and wildlife spots of the unique Galapagos Islands.

Rooms onboard Theory

The 10 deluxe staterooms are all on one deck, and are sleek and spacious, with large windows to make the most of the ever-changing Galapagos views. The beds are plush, with memory-foam mattresses and soft pillows guaranteeing a peaceful night’s sleep, and both king and twin bed options are available. Hi-tech luxuries include Apple TVs complete with pre-loaded movies as well as universal docking stations, and the private bathrooms come with rainfall showers.

Food & Drink

Enjoy gourmet cuisine in the dining room or al fresco on the deck, where four-course dinners, expertly prepared by the chefs, make the most of Ecuadorian and international favourites, including fresh fish. There is also a bar serving a range of drinks.


The Theory has a sundeck for shaded outdoor dining and relaxing on a lounger or in the Jacuzzi, and there’s also a fitness centre onboard so you can keep up with your fitness regime while on holiday in the Galapagos.  

Activities onboard Theory

Expert naturalist guides will take you in small groups of no more than 10 per guide on scenic nature walks, beach strolls, trips in a Zodiac boat, snorkelling and kayaking adventures, and more. There’s even a glass-bottomed boat to give you a fantastic view of the underwater world while you’re en route to excursions. On the islands and around their coasts, see wildlife from marine iguanas to Galapagos penguins.
