In the morning, your driver will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the "Itabaca Canal" will take you to North Seymour Island, which is a spectacular place to hike, swim and enjoy the snorkel.
On this island, you will see palo santo trees, colonies of blue-footed boobies performing their mating ritual in the open spaces of the island, the female booby is large and likes to chirp a little more than the male. Sometimes boobies nest right on the tourist trail, so you'll have to be a little careful not to step on them when walking. You will be able to see the nests of many of these species very close, such as seagulls, frigates, and yellow warblers.
Most Galapagos birds are not afraid of humans. On the other side of the island and while the waves crash on the rocks, you can also see the mischievous sea lions playing and surfing in the sea. North Seymour is practically flat and arid, with some vegetation including cacti, palo santo trees, and salt bushes.
The area of the islands is approximately 1.9 square kilometers and has a maximum altitude of 28 meters. North Seymour Island is located near Baltra Island (this is the arrival and departure island of the Galapagos). North Seymour was formed by an elevation of lava rocks under the ocean. Seymour Island is separated from Baltra Island by a small channel. The island is known as "Seymour Norte", while Baltra Island is also known as "Seymour Sur".
There is a circular trail on North Seymour Island about 2 kilometers long that crosses the interior of the island and allows you to explore the rocky shoreline. This trail will take you through some of the largest colonies in the Galapagos Islands. Once you have completed all the activities, you will stay in Puerto Ayora.
