Isla North Seymour, Galapagos Islands Cruise Port

The Isla North Seymour, or simply the North Seymour Island, is an island located close to Baltra Island and is part of the Galapagos Islands archipelago. The North Seymour Island was formed as a result of a seismic uplift of a submarine lava formation, and was named after Lord Hugh Seymour. The entire island is covered with some low and bushy vegetation. The island covers an approximate area of approximately 1.9 square kilometers and reaches an altitude of about 28 meters. North Seymour Island is better known for the bird species it hosts like the swallow-tailed gulls, blue-footed boobies, and one of the largest populations of the magnificent frigate birds. Listed below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors can enjoy after cruising to Isla North Seymour, Galapagos Islands:
 
  • There are three exquisite dive sites around the island, one of them being in a protected cove. These dive sites provide the perfect opportunity to get closer to the region's marine life. Visitors can observe sea turtles, sea lions, and large schools of fishes in the area.
     
  • The island is especially inviting to birdwatchers and photographers alike, due to the large populations of some rare birds like the magnificent frigates and blue-footed boobies. Viewing these birds and documenting them in their natural habitat is always an avid bird-watcher's dream.
     
  • Nature lovers would also be thrilled to be in the presence of some other rare animals like the island's sea lions, land iguanas, and marine iguanas that are characteristic of the region. Some have even witnessed the marine iguanas feeding on land vegetation, which is a strange occurrence.
     
  • The island's highlight is its 2 km long visitor hiking trail; a tour of the island through this trail is only allowed while in the company of a certified Galapagos naturalist guide. This trail brings visitors closer to the island's flora and fauna.
