Our trip to the Galapagos was nothing short of spectacular. We scuba dived with sharks, walked by humungous tortoises and hiked by the second largest crater in the world. Everything was incredible but it wouldn’t have been complete without our last-minute trip to North Seymour Island.
North Seymour is famous for bird watchers due to it being a nesting ground for blue-footed boobies and for the Frigate bird, which is equally famous for the males inflating their red throat-pouch during mating season.
Due to the islands popularity, it can be hard to book on short notice and boats only go there on certain days of the week, which can make things difficult if you’re short on time. We asked around at a few tour shops and none of them could get us in when we needed. Luckily I didn’t give up and after emailing Galapagos Unlimited Travel, they found us a spot just in time. We never did actually meet them but they arranged everything on their end and we were picked up from our hotel a couple of days later.
