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.
