North Seymour & Rabida Island

May 27, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


As the sun rises on our first full day of adventure, we start exploring North Seymour Island. The enthusiasm is high as all are able to encounter frigatebirds, as the males inflate their red gular sacs, trying to attract females. Blue-footed boobies dance, showing off their feet as an attractant, while land iguanas slowly move upon the path. Galapagos sea lions and fur seals are found in abundance along the coast. A disturbance on the water alerts us to the amount of fish feeding.

Entering into the afternoon at Radiba Island, we encounter the marine life in abundance as we enter into the world of the ocean. It was an amazing day, allowing our guests to experience a taste of the diversity of life here in the Galapagos Archipelago.
