Catamaran M/C Galapagos Seaman JourneyThe M/C Galapagos Seaman Journey offers comfortable accommodations in six standard cabins (14 m2/151 sq. feet) located on the main deck and two suite cabins (18 m2/193 sq. feet) located on the upper deck. All cabins have individual climate control and feature private facilities, locker and closet.

Among its social areas, the M/C Galapagos Seaman Journey has a comfortable dining room, one outside bar located on the upper deck, and a living room equipped with TV, DVD player, and a stereo system. All this complemented with a Jacuzzi and a spacious sun deck offering a great view of the Galapagos Islands' landscapes.

The M/C Galapagos Seaman Journey has nine friendly crew members supervised by a cruise director who guarantees world quality service. Additionally, she comes with a Naturalist Guide Level II/III, who has been trained and licensed by the Galapagos National Park Service.

There are several advantages of cruising on board a catamaran versus a monohaul yacht, to mention a few:
Smoother Ride: Almost any multihull will offer you a smoother ride in rough water due to the dual hull design and the construction's parachute effect as the boat crosscuts the waves. Air trapped between the hulls cushions the impact of re-entry. As the catamaran does not land on the hull's centerline, like a monohull would, the effects of the impact are spread over a wider area.
Stability: Load levels on a catamaran can be up to 20% greater than a similar size monohull. Catamarans are incrementally more stable as they do not pivot on the centerline. The footprint is wider, helping to negate the effects of rolling seas.
More deck space: A catamaran is wider than a monohaul yacht offering additional deck space and sunbathing areas.
Environment friendly: All power catamarans have less hull resistance in the water, resulting in greater fuel efficiency (comparatively it takes less horsepower and fuel to accomplish optimal performance in a power catamaran than in a power monohull).
Access to remote areas: The catamaran's shallow draft design allows access to waterways that most conventional hulls cannot navigate.
