I have just bought the 5-6 player seafarers extension for catan and I also have the basic catan. Can I play like this? or do I have to have the normal seafarers?

Yes you need Seafarers to play the Seafarers 5-6 expansion as intended.

According to https://catanshop.com/catan-seafarers-5-6-player-extension

NOT a complete game! You need a CATAN® game (aka The Settlers of CATAN®), a CATANⓇ: 5-6 Player extension, and a CATANⓇ: Seafarers expansion in order to play with this game extension!

  • He also needs the catan 5-6 player extension

  • @Jungkook quoted in the answer: "... a CATANⓇ: 5-6 Player extension..." Mar 16, 2022 at 13:19
  • @L.ScottJohnson in the quoted text it says that. But the answer itself says 'you need Seafarers' I think it's important to state explicitly that the 5-6 extension is also required.

    @Jungkook This is being pedantic. The question was asked if the base version of Seafarers was required. The answer is yes. The quote covers another options.
