Galapagos Christmas and New Year's departures: Unforgettable Christmas and New Year's Departures on the Seaman Journey and the Anahi

Days: 5 or 8 | From: $3,190/per person

The Seaman Journey is an intimate yet spacious first class option for exploring the Galapagos. This 16 passenger catamaran offers several sun decks, a dining room and bar/lounge, and a well-stocked “book nook.” All 8 cabins have air conditioning, private bathroom, and large ocean-view windows that open. The on board service is warm and attentive and excursions are led by a bilingual naturalist guide; excursion options include hiking, snorkeling, and kayaking.

The Anahi is a first class power catamaran with high comfort standards, and as a catamaran it offers slightly more stability than a single-hulled vessel. The ship accommodates 16 passengers in 8 cabins, all with private facilities and climate controls. The yacht offers cozy common areas, a library, movie room, dining room and lounge, as well as a bar, lounge area, and Jacuzzi on the upper sundeck. All excursions are led by a bilingual naturalist guide, and include hiking, snorkeling, and kayaking.

Please Note: Most trips to the Galapagos require one night before the cruise in Quito or Guayaquil. We will be happy to assist you with any land arrangements during your trip, including hotels, transfers, and tours in Quito or other areas of the country.

Reviews from this trip

5 stars
  • My 10 year old daughter was terrified of even paddle boats and within a day was jumping in and out of the dingys and snorkeling with the sea lions. The crew of the boat were friendly and helpful. We didn't want to go home.

  • We were particularly pleased with the selection of the Anahi. It was perfect for us with a great guide and a very compatible and interesting group of fellow passengers.
    Tom and Carolyn Liesy
  • The Anahi experience was terrific! The crew were excellent. The tours of the Galapagos Islands were exciting and very interesting. We were able to get close to the wildlife, both flora and fauna and I was able to take a gazillion pictures.
