We made the right choice with the Seaman Journey

We felt that we lucked out with a fun group of fellow travelers, an attentive, smart & local guide, and a great crew on a very comfortable boat. For me, the snorkeling the final 3 days in clear, warm, abundant waters was the highlight. Little coral but where else can you swim with sea lions, penguins, sharks, eels, octopi, starfish, rays, schools of angelfish, and much, much more. I wish that we could have stayed on the boat for a few more days.
