North Seymour Island, Galápagos

The little island teeming with life

Information about North Seymour

North Seymour is a small island off the coast of Baltra in the Galápagos. North Seymour was not formed as the result of a volcanic eruption, but by a seismic uplift of the sea bed, and is only 90ft above sea level at its highest point. It was originally named after an English aristocrat.

The whole island is renowned as teeming with life, with many iconic Galápagos species resident here including the largest nesting colony of Blue-Footed Boobies. The 1 mile long visitor trail across the island is one of the most popular for wildlife lovers and photographers to take. Other prominent species include land iguanas, marine iguanas, Galápagos sea lions, frigatebirds and pelicans - to name just a few!
