North Seymour is a small island in the Galápagos, with significant populations of rare species. While you’re here you can see some of the Galápagos most unusual birds, including the Magnificent Frigate Bird and the blue-footed boobie. These bids both have interesting mating rituals — the Magnificent Frigate Bird inflates a giant red throat sac, and the blue-footed boobie does a seemingly ungainly dance.
North Seymour Island also has a thriving colony of land iguanas. You can see lots of iguanas and sea lions near the shore.
Your craft will continue to the Las Bachas beach, which has white sand and clear, turquoise water. Wade into the water and look down to see a tropical fish swimming in the shallows. This tour provides snorkeling equipment to get a closer look. In this area, you might also spot some pink flamingos wading in the shallows.

We loved this whole day. The destination, the yacht, the snorkeling, the logistics - everything was fantastic.
Sea lions are everywhere, ad not afraid of people. This is an excellent place to spend 2 days!
