Your guide to
Blue Footed Booby
One of the most easily observed sea birds and booby species of the Galapagos Islands, they're also among the most easily recognizable with their bright blue feet.
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.
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.
Do you have a specific experience in mind? If you're looking forward to enjoying something yourself, chances are that others will be, too! The best way to get the trip you really want is to book early.
