North Seymour & Rabida Islands, 5/22/2022, National Geographic Endeavour II

We spent the morning at North Seymour Island, a wonderful place to observe seabirds such as blue-footed boobies, which are nesting right now. On top of bushes and palo santo trees along the path, we observed male frigatebirds displaying their inflated gular sacks. What a sight! We saw land and marine iguanas, too, as well as Galapagos sea lions resting on the sand. An afternoon visit to Rabida Island, the red island, complemented our fantastic morning. Our guests went snorkeling off the red beach where sea lions eagerly waited for them. Snorkelers observed large schools of colorful fish. For the first time in many years, we saw greater flamingos nesting in the brackish water lagoon. They were so close! Galapagos is full of surprises!
