On the first morning of our expedition in the Enchanted Isles, we anchored near North Seymour. It’s a small, flat island that may look uninteresting from a distance, but it is full of amazing wildlife. Seabirds like the nutrient-rich waters that surround the island, amongst them both magnificent and great frigatebird species which like the arid vegetation where they can nest. At lunchtime we navigated to Rabida and landed on its unique red beach, home to a colony of endemic and ever-so-busy Galápagos sea lions.
