Option 1
Seymour Island

This small island is one of the most important fishing sites for Marine Birds. This place is the reason for many travellers and ornithologists to observe the spectacular and diverse amount of birds of the Galapagos.

The visit site is located next to the nesting area of Frigate Birds, both Magnificent and Common, that rest on the trees along the whole year. Witnessing the mating dance of the Blue Footed Boobies is also one of the highlights of the experience. There is additionally a Palo Santo forest that spreads on the south shore of Seymour where birds nest, and offer a spectacular view of the channel formed in between Bartolomé and Seymour.

It is an unpopulated island.

Its formation is related to an uplifting of the underwater layer that resulted in a very eroded flat rock surrounded by risks. Here, the marine base is still evident, giant rocks and shells are found everywhere.

Hundreds of sharks such as the Tiger Shark, Galapagos Shark, Reef Shark and others, swim by the shore of this island.  The Upwelling Phenomenon caused by the cold currents, enhance the marine diversity on this snorkelling and dive area.

Animals: frigate birds, blue footed boobies, sea lions, marine iguanas, swallow-tailed gulls, snakes, herons, hawks, sharks, rays

Plants: Palo Santo, Opuntia
