Seaman Journey Review
AdventureSmith Explorations’ Seaman Journey review includes a detailed description of the small ship including deck plans and a photo gallery. Our Galapagos experts have been aboard the Seaman Journey firsthand. Please read our Seaman Journey review below then contact our experts to compare the Seaman Journey with other small cruise ships, yachts and catamarans offering Galapagos cruises and private Galapagos yacht charters.
Choose the Seaman Journey for a stable, roomy, sun-filled Galapagos journey. One of the best aspects of this yacht is that she is a catamaran. The multihull design of the Seaman Journey reduces rocking while under motor and at anchor, allowing for smoother sailing. The shallow draft of the catamaran’s hulls enables the ship to get closer to shore, and this design also creates more roomy cabins and spacious areas above deck, making the Seaman Journey an ideal Galapagos yacht.
Common Areas Aboard Seaman Journey
The dining room and saloon/lounge area are on the main deck with large windows and doors to the outer deck.

The Seaman Journey is touted as having one of the best sundecks in the Galapagos Islands with her teak deck, covered area and sun beds on the top deck.
