What you’ll se at North Seymour tour
In Galapagos you get the chance to visit inhabited islands and enjoy a unique experience where you can really relax and disconnect. North Seymour is one of the most visited inhabited islands and a great chance to live the full Galapagos Experience.
The journey begins at Puerto Ayora, where we’ll take a car and drive towards the Itabaca Channel. From this point at the nort of Santa Cruz island we’ll navigate for about 45 minutes to North Seymour. An authorized bilingual guide will be with you the whole time and tell you all about the Galapagos Islands and some fun and interesting facts. The guide will also tell you about the unique animal species you can find at Galapagos and how they adapted and survived.
On our way to North Seymour, we’ll make a quick stop in a great spot in the middle of the ocean where marine life is stunning. Wel hop off the boat and do some snorkeling to take a good look of this subacuatic place.
Trekking at North Seymour Island
When we finilly arrive to the coast of North Seymour you’ll be amazed with its paradisiac beaches. However, this is not the only wonder of this Island. In this day trip we’ll also do a walk for an hour and a half through the interior of the island to discover its unique vegetattion and the reason why North Seymour its the favorite island of all the birds in Galapagos.
North Seymour Island was born as a result of many volcanic eruptions. This is why you’ll need comfortable sport shoes because of its irregular thick soil. You can save your flip flops for later. This exotic soil is the reason why marine iguanas and many birds like this island, because not all the species can survive this soil so they can bassically own the whole island withouth any predators disturbing them.
The animals in Galapagos aren’t afraid of human beings. If you are a bird lover you should definetly do North Seymour Daytrip. This Island is the best place in Galapagos to do some birdwatching and enjoy a very close sighf of blue footed bobies and frigates.

After the walk around North Seymour, we’ll take the boat again and navigate towards Las Bachas Beach where you’ll enjoy a well deserved rest in a unique beach all for you. Its thin sand an clear waters mark a perfect ending to this tour that you’ll never forget.
