Spirit of Adventure aboard Silver Origin

Literally every moment in this "living laboratory" can take your breath away. You may see a pod of dolphins jumping just off the bow, a spouting whale breaching the surf off in the distance, or a flock of frigate birds following in the wake of our ship. And with an expedition team of the highest caliber, you will not only visit this unique region, but experience a more profound appreciation of its natural wonders. 

Further, there are seminars, daily briefings and previews of the next day's outings for you to learn and understand this region. Join a guide on deck to identify the seabirds or chat awhile with the navigational officers. Perhaps, enhance your skills with a photography workshop or participate in informal discussions led by the expeditions team. Complimentary open bars nurture a convivial, club-like atmosphere, while the open-seating restaurant is perfect for impromptu dining with friends.

Activity Level & Health

Participants must be in good health to embark on this CruiseTour. This is a rigorous tour and you need to be in good physical condition with good balance as the terrain varies from sandy beaches to uneven lava and rocks. All ship-to-shore transfers use Zodiacs and some wet landings require guests to wade through knee-high deep coastal water. 

You can expect to walk 2-3 miles on average over the course of each day. Quito is 9,350 feet above sea level and some may experience altitude-related symptoms! Hydration throughout the trip is strongly recommended.

  

Luggage Allowance

We recommend packing based on the most restrictive luggage policy, which is the Intra-Ecuador flights. Please note, there are no porters or baggage trolleys at the Galápagos airports; Guests must handle their own luggage.

Intra-Ecuador Flights: You are permitted one (1) piece of checked luggage with a weight of 50lbs. (23 kg) with a maximum dimension of 62 linear inches per passenger, plus one (1) carry-on bag may be transported onboard having a maximum weight of 22lbs. (10 kg), and a maximum combined linear measurement that does not exceed 45 inches.

Linear Measurement = length + width + height

Luggage allowances and charges are subject to change. Please refer to your specific carrier's web site to access the most up-to-date information.


Packing Suggestions

Shipboard attire is casual; appropriate attire for daytime aboard ship or ashore consists of standard sports outfits. Shoes should be non-skid, flat or very low heeled for deck activities.Evening attire is also casual with caveat that jeans and shorts are not permitted in The Restaurant dining venue.

In The Restaurant:

  • No jeans; in fact jeans are not recommended at all for this trip as are not quick-drying
  • No flip flops.
  • No shorts. 
  • For gentlemen - Pants and shirt (polo, button down or Hawaiian).
  • For ladies - Pants, skirts or casual dresses. We recommend leaving heels, jewelry and makeup at home

Helpful hints:

  • Landings on Galapagos Island may be either wet or dry so quick drying shoes with covered toes are best. Think hiking or mesh sneakers; Keen’s as example
  • Quick-dry clothes including wicking or Columbia-type clothes are best for this equator environment
  • Poncho/Light rain jacket with hood; umbrellas are not welcomed due to Zodiac operation.
  • The color yellow is not advisable when outside as well as any other stark colors because it attracts insects; stick to light colored clothing. 
  • A water resistant back pack and water bottle are provided by the cruise line – no need to pack this.
  • A hat (with a strap) IS A MUST due to wind when riding on the Zodiacs
  • Polarized sunglasses with a strap are highly recommended
  • Lip Balm with SPF protection. 
  • Reef-Friendly Sunscreen - Click here for more information. 
  • Body Glide Anti-Chafe Balm - helps with chaffing and preventing blisters on your feet. 
  • Motion sickness medication either over the counter or prescription
  • 2 bathing suits; one to wear while the other is drying.
  • Double Ziplock bags for electronics 
  • Walking sticks are available onboard, subject to limited availability; if you definitely require one, recommend bringing your own collapsible version
  • Check out Lifeproof for waterproof cases for your IPhone
  • Camera equipment - please refer to Silversea's description below

For snorkeling: You will obtain a shorty wet suit onboard for this activity. We recommend bringing winter (long-sleeve/long-pants) running gear (as example) along with bathing suit to wear under the wet suit, if sensitive to cold. Average sea temperature in February is 77 degrees-F. 

A note about toiletries: The cruise line will have a very small shop with limited items for sale. Other than Quito & Guayaquil, there are no other shopping options for you to purchase things you may have forgotten. Please make sure you have adequate supply of insect repellent, sunscreen, and medication for this journey.
