The North Seymour Island Tour - Day Trip from Puerto Ayora is a combination of a sightseeing tour, day cruise on board of a comfortable yacht, hiking and snorkeling activities. Tre trip starts with the collection of the tour participants from bigger hotels in Puerto Ayora on the South of Santa Cruz island. 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.
Once we land on the North Seymour Island, this wonderful land will welcome you by sea lions in the dock and rocks. 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!
We anchor by the hardly accessible from the land Las Bachas Beach on the Northern coast of Santa Cruz island and spend an hour here. You have a great opportunity to snorkel in the shallow waters of the Las Bachas Beach to explore its amazing marine life. If you decide to snorkel, you may spot sharks, variety of fishes and maybe flamingos in the beach lagoon. 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.
Later on, we get on board of our yacht again and sail back to dock at the Itabaca Canal where the coach is already waiting for you to serve you beautiful fifty minutes long drive across the Santa Cruz island to your hotels in Puerto Ayora.
