Seaman Journey Galapagos Cruises

M/C Galapagos Seaman Journey Cruises offer a first-class expeditionary catamaran experience of the Galapagos Islands. Intimacy and camaraderie await on board with just 16 passengers. Encounter many endemic species like Galapagos giant tortoises, penguins, land and marine iguanas, frigate birds, blue-footed boobies and much more while cruising the Galapagos Islands in style. 

Seaman Journey operates four Galapagos cruise itineraries (two 8-day cruises, one 5-day cruise and one 4-day cruise), which can be combined in various ways to create longer 11-, 12- or 15-day cruises. Book a Galapagos cruise aboard the M/C Seaman Journey for the trip of a lifetime.

Seaman Journey is an updated catamaran featuring teakwood flooring, sun beds and outside dining, which have garnered it attention as one of the best sundecks in the Islands. The 16-guest Galapagos small ship offers a comfortable, clean and bright home. The first-class motor catamaran features cabins and suites with opening, panoramic windows; a sport platform for diving; spacious sundecks, both covered and in full sun; and fine dining both indoors and al fresco. Snorkel gear, pangas and kayaks on board enable excursions for guests of varying activity levels.
