The Galápagos Seaman Journey is a superior class expedition catamaran. It's been recently refurbished and has been decorated throughout with natural woods and pastel colors to create a cozy, relaxed ambiance with a touch of luxury. Her twin hulls mean she is more stable in the water than the single hull yachts in her class, making her very suitable for those who may be prone to motion sickness.
Superior comfort Galápagos Seaman Journey has only 8 guest cabins, and a maximum occupancy of 16, giving you a more intimate Galápagos experience than larger cruise vessels. Her careful design means there is plenty of space to relax, and cozy corners for private contemplation of the day's adventures.
The main deck has 6 twin cabins that are tastefully decorated and feature a spacious private bathroom. Other amenities include a hair dryer, safe, and individual air conditioning. Panoramic windows give you a stunning view of the islands and wildlife outside.
On the upper deck are two queen size suites with the same amenities but offering extra space and the best views thanks to their position at the top of the yacht. These are perfect for a romantic honeymoon stay, or for families with small children under 12 as a sofa bed can be added if required.
A social experience The main deck hosts the dining room and the saloon. These have been carefully designed to have a light and airy feel during the day, with a more intimate and cozy feel in the evenings. The layout is perfect for socializing with like-minded travelers at the end of an amazing day of adventures.
When it comes to food, the Galápagos Seaman Journey prides itself on offering a special experience. The chef only uses fresh local produce to create a never ending range of sensational dishes that reflect both local and international cuisine. All food allergies or diet types can be fully catered for, just be sure to let us know your exact needs when you book and the yacht's chef will ensure you don't miss out on a marvelous culinary experience.
Outside, the yacht's sundeck is divided into a shaded area with loungers and an open terrace with sun beds. Both areas are designed to provide you with sociable comfort as well as a little privacy if you require. There is a dive platform at the rear and guests can make use of the snorkeling equipment and kayaks in order to make the most of time on and in the water. There's nothing better than a swim in the Pacific on the hottest days!
Impressive itineraries The Seaman Journey offers the choice of two different week-long itineraries - one investigating the western Galápagos islands, the other concentrating on the eastern sights. There are also shorter northern and southern itineraries avilable.
Whichever you choose you'll typically enjoy two excursions a day. Activities led by your highly trained naturalist guide can include snorkeling, walking on one of the islands, visiting the coastal mangroves in pangas, and a variety of wet and dry landings at visitor sites. You will be able to get up close and personal with some of the most iconic and rare wildlife in the world, including giant tortoises, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies to name but a few.
Our comments The Galápagos Seaman Journey is a delightful way to travel around the Galápagos. Her crew are consistently top-rated for their service, and the food is a definite highlight! The comfortable, bright cabins are lovely, and the upper deck suites offer either that extra touch of luxury for a romantic adventure for two, or extra space perfect for a family with a young child. With her super-stable twin hulls, we think the Galápagos Seaman Journey is a great option. Speak to one of our Galápagos experts today for help with choosing your perfect itinerary.

Sustainability on board the Seaman Journey
At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.
The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.
But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Food & Drinks on board the Seaman Journey
The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.
You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.
Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.
Reviews of Seaman Journey
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

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!

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: Galapatours.com

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!!
