North Seymour Island

Today our adventure started on North Seymour Island.

North Seymour is a small up-lifted island filled with a profusion of wildlife – above and below the sea. The new species today included Blue-footed Boobies, and lots of Galapagos land iguanas.

Love was in the air again as Blue Footed Boobies did their mating dance. It clearly works.

 

Sea lions basked in the sun and Land Iguanas foraged (Cactus, really?)

Coming ashore on the east coast of Santiago Island, we saw the lava flows that are not much older than a hundred years (1897). The snorkeling was great and we swam along side massive sea turtles.
