eymour island is located in the north of Baltra and was created by raising lava from the bottom of the sea. Seymour hosts an amazing variety of flora and fauna. It has a unique beach full of contrast coming from the white sand and lava rocks, here we can watch frigate birds in their natural habitat and see their peculiar way of flirting (breeding season only). Here we will be able to find blue footed boobies nests, sea lions and a large colony of marine iguanas.
The tour starts around 8:00 am in Puerto Ayora, there we will pick you up from your hotel or designated meeting point, to take a 45 minute car ride to Itabaca channel. A boat will be waiting for us to navigate for approximately 50 minutes. Once we get there we will start a hike through basaltic rock ( can be really slippery, please bring appropriate footwear), as we go through the path the terrain will switch to pillow lava formations. Then we will reach a ring like path where we will enjoy a walk in the company of marine iguanas and blue footed boobies.
n the center of the island you will find: lava lizards land iguanas, frigate birds, pelicans, swallowed-tailed gulls, lava gulls, Nazca boobies, red footed boobies, blue footed boobies and nests from many boobies( sometimes even new born boobies). You can easily identify a boobies nest, since they are made form twigs and rocks, surrounded by a guano circle. In the perimeter of the island you will be able to see colonies of sea lions, sally light-foot crabs and have a breath taking view of the Daphne Islands.
Seymour is also an ideal place to swim or snorkel with the company of sea lions, marine iguanas and tintorera sharks.
We will return to Puerto Ayora at 17h30
