North Seymour Island
A small island just north of Baltra, where most visitors to the Galapagos Islands arrive via plane into Seymour Airport. North Seymour is uninhabited and while it does feature a walking trail to enjoy the abundant bird life of the island, access is permitted only with an accompanying local guide.
Despite proximity to an active military airfield in years past, North Seymour hosts an abundance of bird life. This is where many visitors to the Galapagos spot their first blue footed booby or where bird watching enthusiasts themselves flock to spot nesting frigate birds.
Planning Your Cruise
The unique geology of the island belies a cold current phenomena which attracts an abundance of marine life, including hammerhead sharks! Are you brave enough to go snorkeling here?
