Red Footed Booby
Things to do in
Nature & Wildlife
The red footed booby is the smallest of booby family, with somewhat unique behaviour among roosting sea birds of the Galapagos Islands. Despite the large, webbed feet, perfect for swimming and life on the water, they roost in trees and mangroves around their island homes in the Galapagos. Of course they are identified by their red feet, but may be mistaken for the Nazca booby.
The red footed booby is a sea bird and can fly, but you might have the best opportunity to view them on Genovesa Island, with populations on Punta Pitt and San Cristobal Island.
Selecting a cruise itinerary
While the birds are most numerous around Genovesa Island, other islands tend to feature more heavily on cruise itineraries, such as San Cristobal and especially Punta Pitt. For the Celebrity Flora and other sailings by Celebrity Cruises, select an Inner Loop itinerary.
