After everybody in the bus, we are going to cross whole Santa Cruz island to the north in order to get on board of our yacht docked to the pier of Itabaca Canal.

On the way to the North, you can observe the typical scenery of Santa Cruz island and admire this beauty, so even the transfer is very interesting to experience. Once on board of our yacht, we take our an hour-long sail to the North Seymour Island along the coast of Baltra Island.

The island's landscape is contrasted by Palo Santo (incense stick) forest and red-colored soil. North Seymour is a true paradise for bird lovers! Here you can expect to spot blue-footed boobies nesting (or making their courtship dancing, depending on the season), swallowed tail gull sitting in the cliffs and admire a large number of frigate birds in their nests.

We will have two hours long hike exploring the island and its wildlife and later come back on board of the yacht to have a delicious lunch along with the sailing back to Santa Cruz island. Here is not the end of the adventure!

If you are not a fan of snorkeling, you may simply take a walk along the beach admiring its stunning pristine scenery or just relax as the sea lions do.
