Premium yacht tour to North Seymour Island

Breakfast at your hotel, and then we pick you up to take the comfortable yacht that will take us to the incredible island of North Seymour. This uninhabited island is one of our favorites for animal lovers. Here you will see a large colony of Blue-footed boobies and the extremely photogenic Great Frigate birds. Also, look out for swallow-tailed gulls, marine iguanas, land iguanas, sea lions, and more.

North Seymour is particularly famous for its elegant Frigate birds that, during mating season, reward us with the vision (and photographs) of males inflating their guttural pouch into an enormous scarlet-red balloon to attract the females.

After a delicious lunch onboard the yacht, we head to Bachas Beach, a beautiful white coralline expanse. This is the perfect place for practicing snorkeling, swimming, or simply enjoying the white soft sand. Several brackish lagoons only a few steps away from the sea provide feeding grounds for various wading birds, from stilts to flamingos.

Overnight at your Hotel.

As the tour is run by fishermen there is a short fishing time, and any fish caught are served as fresh sashimi.

After a short 30-minute ride we will arrive at La Fe, a beautiful White sand beach where you can disembark and swim at the beach or just relax in the sun. Lunch is served on board, This is also the last snorkel site of the day where you can see sea lions, turtles, reef fish, rays, and reef sharks.

This 3km gorgeous golden sand beach is so secluded that you will probably have it for yourself during the week. Of course, you will have to share it with sea lions, flamingos, and probably Blue Footed Boobies.

This is a self-guided visit at your own pace, so just let us know at what time we will pick you up again for our return to Puerto Ayora.
