Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Naturalist cruise on board the beautiful Seaman Journey! On this Expedition Cruise, you will discover the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos Islands: On Española, the oldest and arguably the greenest of the Galápagos Islands, incredible hikes await. You will get to see many endemic species, including the Española Mocking Bird, the Española Lava Lizard, and, hopefully, the famous Waved Albatross. Fernandina, the youngest island, will blow your mind with its rugged lava landscapes. The youngest island in the archipelago, it is still being formed by volcanic eruptions and makes for a wonderful, otherworldly contrast to the other islands. During our visit to Floreana, you will have the opportunity for some great dinghy rides, extensive snorkeling, and learning more about the fascinating human history of the Galápagos. Isabela, the biggest of all islands in the Galápagos, offers you fantastic hikes, views and arguably some of the best snorkeling spots in the Archipelago. During your time spent on Rábida, you will have the opportunity to watch wild Flamingos and walk on a blood-red sandy beach. On San Cristóbal, you will be able to snorkel in crystal clear waters, relax with sea lions on pristine white sand beaches and learn more about the evolution of giant tortoises. During your time on Santa Cruz, you will have the chance to observe the famous Galápagos Giant Tortoises in the wild and learn more about the preservation and scientific study of these amazing animals. On Santiago, an island formerly inhabited by pirates, you will be able to enjoy hikes and dinghy rides.

Your ship: Seaman Journey

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 … Read more about Seaman Journey

Food & Drinks

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.

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:

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!!
