Seaman Journey itineraries explained

Regarding itineraries, the Seaman Journey offers two 8-day itineraries:

Itinerary C1 is a combined itinerary (A4 + B5) which covers the Southeastern islands of Floreana and Española and heads north to Genovesa as well.

Itinerary C – 8 days itinerary will take you to the Western Islands of Isabela and Fernandina in style.

Connoisseur Tip:

The good thing is that you have a choice between a longer 8-day cruise or short 4 and 5-day cruises. If you can spend a week in the Galapagos Islands I would suggest taking the C – 8-day itinerary, it will take you to the wonderful Western Islands and since it can´t be split into shorter itineraries you get an uninterrupted cruise. If you only have four days to spend on the Galapagos Islands I would choose the A-4 day itinerary which visits Santa Fe and Genovesa.
