The luxurious MV Theory is sailing—and preserving—one of the planet’s most delicate habitats.
A bird darts below, his tuxedoed, bottle-shaped body slicing through the cobalt water. “Penguin!” someone shouts. He soars up in great arcs around the snorkelers, chasing fish glinting bright as new dimes against the rocks’ green algae.
Every Galápagos traveler has some breathless eureka moment like this: their first hammerhead shark, a blue-footed booby’s high-stepping mating dance, or clearing the trail for a giant tortoise, so old it might have born during the Civil War. But not every visitor gets to explore the World Heritage site in high style with Ecoventura’s new MV Theory, the greenest megayacht in the archipelago’s fleet.
This 142-foot, 10-cabin beauty offers charters and regular sailings: add on a VIP package for private transfers and tours, plus a sunset Zodiac ride with the captain. The chic minimalist décor allows the wildlife and haunting beauty of the rugged volcanic islands to hold center stage. Expect panoramic views, rainfall showers, and the option for king beds, along with the hospitality, fine dining, and distinctive character of a Relais & Châteaux member.
