Visitors will have a chance to see the largest nesting colony of frigatebirds in the Galápagos. Male frigatebirds puff up their bright red air sacs in an attempt to seduce females, which makes for a good photo. Roaming blue footed boobies and resting sea lions are likely to be encountered here as well.

A network of hiking trails weave through large tracts of Galápagos prickly pear trees. Nesting birds are often right alongside the path, allowing visitors to observe them close up. The land iguanas on North Seymour are non-native and were brought over from Baltra Island in the 1930s.
