When the Galapagos Seaman Journey began sailing the Galapagos back in 2008, it was immediately recognized as a first-class vessel that combined adventure and comfort. Today, ten years later, that perfect balance continues, in a craft that still sets the standard for catamarans in this exotic wildlife sanctuary.
The Seaman Journey has three decks to allow you to view the islands’ numerous ecosystems from a variety of vantage points. Its expert crew is trained in environmentally sensitive, sustainable tourism. And when you decide to go ashore, the ship’s guides allow you to enjoy snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, and Zodiac rides as you immerse yourself in the pristine world revealed by Darwin nearly 200 years ago.
The catamaran’s eight cabins comfortably house 16 passengers. Each cabin comes with a choice of one queen or two twin beds, picture windows, and private baths with abundant hot water. Safe-deposit boxes and individual air-conditioning allow for maximum security and comfort.
Life on the Seaman Journey is a feast for the mind as well as the senses. That feast starts with informative talks on the Galapagos’ geology, marine life, biology, and history, delivered by a certified naturalist guide. It extends to rich Ecuadorian and international cuisine, with meat, poultry, and seafood dishes prepared by an award-winning chef.
The vessel’s outdoor areas are similarly luxurious. A full sundeck with day beds allows you to bask in a delicate interplay of sun and shade, while the al fresco dining area features cozy table settings beneath a breezy canopy. When you’re ready to relax, enjoy a drink at the full bar on deck. An ideal platform for touring one of Earth’s most magical places.
