If you have been dreaming about a trip to the Galapagos, then this is the voyage for you.  Always up for an extraordinary adventure, Bart & Barb O’Brien invite you to explore the beautiful lands and exotic wildlife that once enthralled Darwin.

Embark your all-suite ship, Silver Origin, in San Cristobal and sail to Santiago, Floreana, the Santa Cruz Highlands and meet the Blue-Footed Boobie, the Giant Tortoise and sea lions.  By day you’ll be delighted by the diverse volcanic landscape and by night you’ll have the chance to relax and unwind about the most luxurious expedition ship in the Galapagos, while savoring regional South American wines during hosted onboard events.

*Note: Due to Ecuadorean laws and restrictions, we are unable to import O’Brien Estate wines for shipboard events
