North Seymour Island is a haven for incredible wildlife: discover a world of sea lions, iguanas and different birds on this day trip from Santa Cruz Island.
North Seymour Island Tour
At the scheduled time, you'll be picked up from your hotel on Santa Cruz Island and taken to the Itabaca Channel, where we'll board a boat for the cruise over to North Seymour Island.
Keep your eyes peeled for the many different species of wildlife that inhabit the Galapagos Islands as we approach North Seymour. You'll be able to get up close to birds including blue-footed boobies, swallow-tailed gulls and magnificent frigatebirds. We'll also have the opportunity to meet the sea lions that inhabit North Seymour Island! Remember that the animals are unpredictable so we can't guarantee how many we'll see on the tour.
We'll learn all about the history and geology of the island, which was created by an underwater lava formation rising above the sea, as we explore its arid, flat terrain and admire the cacti, palo santo and other plants native to the Galapagos archipelago.
North Seymour Island is also home to a large colony of iguanas that we should be able to spot as we walk along the rocky coastline, a trail that will allow us to take in its rugged beauty in all its natural splendour.
We'll return to Puerto Ayora late in the afternoon.
