North Seymour Islet, Rabida Island

May 12, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II

During our first dry landing of the expedition, we visited North Seymour—a small, low-lying island just north of the channel that separates it from Baltra (South Seymour) Island. Here we walked amongst blue-footed boobies, great and magnificent frigatebirds, and our first Galapagos land iguanas.

In the afternoon, we visited Rabida Island (otherwise known as Jervis) where we had our first opportunity to explore the underwater world while snorkeling.

As we neared sunset, we took one last relaxing beach stroll, with wading shore birds and basking Galapagos sea lions.
