Comfortable catamaran catering to just 16 passengers, ensuring camaraderie and excellent service.
The comfortable Seaman Journey catamaran offers a very special experience for those wishing to share their Galápagos cruise with just a small group of like-minded fellow travellers. The purpose-built vessel offers accommodation for 16 guests, creating a sense of camaraderie and intimacy, and ensuring that the nine crew members are able to make everyone feel well looked after.
Structured as a catamaran with a twin hull, the boat is notably stable for her size. It is small, but certainly not cramped: air-conditioned guest cabins and suites are spacious, with lofty ceilings and large picture windows.
Special care is taken to assure your comfort and relaxation, with a cosy bar and lounge area, roomy sun deck and a 'book nook' with a small selection of volumes about the islands. After a day exploring, you can relax over dinner and watch the sunset from the stylish top deck.

Our expert's view
Kathryn Rhodes - Travel Expert
Kathryn backpacked across Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru before joining us. She has a degree in Philosophy and French and is a keen netball player.
For a mid-range boat the Seaman Journey is incredibly spacious and we enjoyed delicious meals on board thanks to the talented chefs. I’d recommend requesting cabins 1 or 2 which have windows to the front as well as the side – bringing in lots of extra light and giving you even more opportunities to take in the amazing views!
