Your Guide To
Blue Footed Booby
With their bright blue, webbed feet, you don't have to be an expert-level bird watcher to identify one. As nearly half the world's population of blue footed boobies lives in the Galapagos, you're also quite likely to see a few specimens during your visit!
Of course anyone with an interest in birding will appreciate checking this cool-legged creature off their list, but we think most people will find the birds affable and entertaining.
Planning Your Trip
While not a guaranteed sight of the islands when visiting by cruise, plenty of itineraries feature spots where the booby can be viewed at Espanola, Isabela Island, and Pinzon in particular.
When You Should Go
June and August bring the mating season, with eggs and chicks following in the next 45 days or so. Easternmost islands of the archipelago host the bulk of these birds, including Espanola, Fernandina, Floreana, Isabela Island, Pinzon, and Santa Cruz itself.
What Else You Might Need
In addition to visa considerations, there is a permit required to visit the Galapagos. This can be arranged as part of your tour or cruise itinerary.
