I would like to be recomended music with sailor themes, and sea traveling, sea exploring and or pirate themed prog, doesent have to be very complex but evoke a feel similar to A Salty Dog - Procol Harum,

I consider it extreme prog metal, but The Call of the Wretched Sea by Ahab is inspired by Moby Dick, much like Mastodon's Leviathan.

heard both, they are nice albums (nice is probably not the correct word to describe sludgy or funural doom metal, but anyway)

King Crimson's "Islands" has a bit of a sailor/ explorer vibe to it. It's a really great album.

Jimmy Buffet is all about the sea...and margaritas...and getting drunk and screwed.
 
From Keith Emerson's Honky album he has the 3 song Hello Sailor piece.
 
Rush has the instrumental "Where's My Thing? Pt 4 Gangster of Boat Trilogy".

If only for the title of the album, 'sea shanties' by High Tide seems to be a good recommendation
