Seymour and Mosquera Islands

In the morning, set off for the harbor to board your ship for today's day trip.

The small island of North Seymour is one of the most diverse islands in the Galapagos archipelago. It is only about two square kilometers in size and above all known for of the intensive courtship rituals of many magnificent frigatebirds which take place during mating season. The island is also home to large land iguanas, marine iguanas and sea lion colonies. In your small group, take a hike through the characteristicly bushy landscape. Here you can discover, in addition to the diverse species of animals, the endemic balsa tree. After approximately two hours exploring the island, you return to your ship to carry on to Mosquera.

Mosquera is a small islet which lies between the islands of Baltra and Seymour. There are no paths but visitors can swim and snorkel on a small sandbar with the sea lions of the large local colony.
