Sustainable Tourism

To protect the archipelago, all vessels in Galápagos must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern, efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution. Furthermore, The Galápagos National Park authority defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit which highlights at what day and time, as well as limiting passenger numbers.

Our commitment extends beyond the mandatory environmental standards for cruise vessels in the region: A portion of your trip price now contributes to our Conservation Project. This initiative empowers local communities to protect their territory, engage in reforestation, and prepare for long-term environmental stewardship.

Seaman Journey Galapagos Cruise


Es war alles bestens organisiert Hallo Babett Vielen Dank, es hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Schon in Guayaquil händigte man uns die Papiere für Flug und Seaman aus und gleich am nächsten Morgen am Flughafen hat uns jemand bereits mit den Bordkarten erwartet. Die Crew der Seaman war ja bestens organisiert, mit Gepäck-Transport und Bus für die Passagiere. Die Kreuzfahrt hat uns super gefallen! Alles war bestens organisiert, die Crew sehr nett und hat uns sehr verwöhnt. Die Ausflüge waren für uns sehr spannend, ausgewogen, Schnorcheln und "Wandern", immer wieder etwas anders. Wir können die Kreuzfahrt jederzeit weiterempfehlen, auch die Kabinen waren genau in der richtigen Grösse, wir hätten die teureren, im oberen Stockwerk gar nicht gebraucht, da wir ja meistens auf Deck, bei einem Ausflug oder im Gemeinschaftsraum waren. An diese wunderbare Reise werden wir noch einige Zeit zurückdenken! Viele Grüsse Mariana W.

Galapagos Seaman Journey 8 day tour booked through Galapatours Trying to get details and prices for specific boats and tours for the Galapagos seemed somewhat confusing online. However once we found Galapatours they were very helpful. They provided information on a few different boats and explained differences between the classes of boats. They were very knowledgeable about what the boats offered and equipment provided. Plus the prices they charged for the tours seemed economical compared to some other prices I had seen. I would definitely recommend using Galapatours for booking a tour in the Galapagos. Source: TRipAdvisor

Seaman Journey Galapagos Cruise


Easy booking, great value for my Galapagos cruise I booked my Galapagos cruise through Galapatours. I had a great experience and would book through them again. The booking process was easy and quick. The agents and company were very responsive when I was trying to book. The agents were also knowledgeable about the different cruise options, itineraries, and animals you see on each. I did the 8 day Seaman cruise and highly recommend it. The boat was clean, beautiful, spacious, and updated. The staff was attentive and professional. The food was delicious with a great variety at every meal. The cruise went to a variety of islands and we saw a large amount of different animals and landscapes. The itinerary was exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend this cruise and itinerary. There isn't anything I would change about the cruise and itinerary as our experience was terrific!

Seaman Journey Galapagos Cruise


Excellent Tour and Excellent Service My husband and I toured 4 of the Galápagos Islands on Seaman Journey. The booking process was easy. I was impressed that when I accidentally overpaid, they contacted me immediately to disclose my error and reimbursed me without any problem. The tour itself was wonderful. The food was plentiful, perfectly prepared, and pleasantly diverse. The service was impeccable. I never figured out exactly when they snuck in to make beds and change towels but every day it seemed to be done before the sheets even had a chance to cool down. The tour guide was engaging, knowledgeable, and always watched out for our safety. I would highly recommend this tour without reservations. Source:

Solid experience This cruise has been extremely good. It really has been better that we expected. Everybody had a great time onboard, from 4 years old until the 78 people. The boat always is clean, the food is succulent, the crew is very kind and attentive, the guide is excellent. Everything has been so good. This trip has been one of the better trips that I have had in my life. I´ll definitely talk to Journey Latin America, and recommend you

Can not ask for more! I was on the Seaman II in December of 2017 and absolutely loved it. I did the same itinerary as once before. The guide Geoff was awesome, very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the islands, wildlife, etc. The staff were just awesome, great service. The snorkeling was amazing, along with the day trips on the island. You will absolutely love it. Everyone one our trip had a great time!!

Treasure Galapagos Cruise

Featuring a wonderfully eclectic decor that sumptuously blends art deco with modern styles, you will feel perfectly at home as you cruise around the enchanting archipelago. Amenities on board are excellent. Every cabin features its own private balcony, allowing you to sit and drink in the islands' beauty in perfect privacy if you wish. Individually controlled air conditioning, delightful private bathroom, and a writing desk/vanity and plenty of storage complete the thoughtful touches. Communal areas on board are large, bright, and airy, and facilities include a jacuzzi on the upper sun deck, outdoor lounge and bar with shade as well as an elegant indoor lounge bar. Treasure of Galápagos features a reading room with its own Natural History library, where your highly experienced naturalist guide will make the habitat and wildlife of the Galápagos come alive for you.

Anahi Galapagos Cruise


The Motor Catamaran Anahi is a delightfully comfortable yacht, built specifically for Galápagos cruises in Ecuador in 2006. This first-class vessel has been designed with stability in mind, offering you a wonderfully relaxed and calm cruise experience. Although a thoroughly modern ship, Anahi is richly decorated throughout with natural wood finishes, including beautiful teak decks and flooring for a real touch of luxury. Taking a maximum of only 16 passengers, Anahi gives you an exclusive experience. Her 6 twin bed cabins have been designed to provide a cozy, “home-from-home” feel, and all offer private en suite bathrooms and large windows, letting light flood in. If you want to treat yourself to something grander, there are two suites onboard on the upper deck. These feature superb king size beds, plenty of extra space, and windows across an entire wall with remarkable views over the bows of the catamaran. All cabins feature independent air conditioning for your comfort. A huge benefit to the catamaran design is the amount of additional space compared to a traditional single-hull Galápagos cruise boat. The lounge and indoor dining area offer plenty of space for eating, relaxing, and learning about the fascinating wildlife and habitats from your naturalist guide. Make your way to the upper level and you are greeted by a vast open stern deck which features a fantastic alfresco bar, and plenty of space for dining outside under the equatorial sun - or, more sensibly, under the shady canopy! There’s even a jacuzzi big enough for 6 at a time here - a real treat on a Galápagos cruise of this class. Sun-worshippers aren’t forgotten. Just make your way up to the top of the boat where the unobstructed sundeck awaits. With comfortable loungers and faux-grass flooring, this deck offers uninterrupted views of the Galápagos. The Anahi’s 9 crew will ensure that everything you need is taken care of. Your cabin will be serviced several times a day, you will enjoy an excellent range of gourmet-quality food, served in a relaxed atmosphere as either buffet-style or full-service meals. When the weather is suitable, you will eat under the shade of the main deck bar - a perfect place to share a meal with like-minded travelers. The bar is very well stocked, and complimentary waters, teas and coffees are available at all times. We do like first-class catamarans like Anahi. They are much more stable than traditional yachts and can travel faster, meaning you get to see more for any given number of days. Naturalist guide Gallo is consistently rated as one of the best by travellers, and the entire crew is always ready to go the extra mile for you. We particularly like the stern deck jacuzzi just across from the bar - the ideal place to watch the sun go down. The choice of itineraries is more extensive than most ships in her class, and we love the flexibility this brings for you to choose the perfect match for what you want to get from your Galápagos experience - if you need some help to choose, just speak to one of our friendly Galápagos experts today.
