North Seymor Island

Since the island of North Seymour is located just north of Baltra, it is a popular first or final excursion on a cruise tour. It is also one of the most action-packed visitor sites in the archipelago, since it serves as an active seabird breeding colony throughout the year. A circular, 2.5 km long interpretive trail follows the coastline and passes through the island's interior, providing visitors with a comprehensive, dynamic view of the island's abundant wildlife.

Along the beach, visitors should expect to see blue-footed boobies and pelicans fishing, swallow-tail gulls and frigate birds flying, and marine iguanas resting on the rocky shore. Taking a rest on the rocks to witness the frenetic activity offshore may even provide the lucky traveler with a glimpse of some playful sea lions surfing the waves. On the inland portion of the trail, visitors are bound to see hordes of nesting male frigate birds, attempting to draw the females' attention to their puffed-up red, guttural sack. Land iguanas are often observed in this part of the trail as well. Regardless of the time of year, visitors are likely to observe some kind of courtship, mating, or nesting on North Seymour . And since both boobies and frigate birds often make their nests close to the trail, it is easy to get close to the action.

The snorkeling and scuba-diving at North Seymour are also excellent. From the surface, visitors are apt to see white-tipped reef sharks, triggerfish, surgeonfish, and other colorful fish. Diving in the channel ("Canal") provides the opportunity to see a host of Gal√°pagos garden eels, moray eels, and the occasional diamond, golden, or manta ray. At the other dive site at the point ("Punta"), hunt for white-tipped reef sharks and moray eels in caves and crevices
