Day trip to North Seymour - Galapagos Tours by #ChokoTrip

North Seymour Island day tour from Santa Cruz (Galapagos)

Walk through the uninhabited islands and experience their natural state. I can help you book the tour to North Seymour from $190

The daily tour to North Seymour island is suggested for those who like a short wildlife walk on an uninhabitable island of the Galapagos. A path full of land iguanas and birds.

The tour starts by taking a bus from the meeting place assigned by the tour operator, then a 45-minute journey to the Itabaca Pier in Santa Cruz Island. Before or after going to North Seymour Island, you will visit the beach called Las Bachas for a short walk to a lagoon; if you are lucky you will see flamingos. Then you snorkel on the beach where you can see sea turtles and many different fish.

The walk on Seymour Island lasts about 1 hour and 30 minutes, and the path takes you to the heart of the bird’s habitat. You will see frigates with their red chest, iguanas, blue footed boobies and other birds.

During all this time working with different yachts, I realized that those who offer low prices are the ones who have the most complaints from their passengers. If you are going to travel to Seymour North Island, you need a boat with service and crew focused on having a good experience.

    A DEFINITE MUST do! It was amazing picked me up from my hotel lobby despite it being out a ways and got me on time. Martine was our tour guide he was very informative the entire day from animals to plants and history. We took the bus to the boat sailed to North Seymour had a wonderful tour of the entire island at a very good pace. Came back to yummy lunch on the boat which was enough for all of us. We had all had those trips where we wish we had brought food not this trip. After lunch we sailed to Bacchus beach the whitest sand and bluest water I’ve ever seen we walked around a bit then snorkeled and swam the day away. Returned us to our hotel lobby’s in the same order as we were picked up which was a minor detail but a very welcomed courteous one!

    This was a beautiful tour- very informational and lots of walking! Have good walking sandals, and a good camera! Lots of birds and endemic species found on the island. Don’t forget your wetsuit, as afterwards you can swim in the ocean. The boat and food were spectacular, and it’s a more upscale day excursion!

    I was very pleased with the service and diligence of ChokoTrip. They booked us on a trip to North Seymour from Santa Cruz. They booked us on the Altamar Yacht which was fantastic. Their staff was on time for our pick-up, very helpful and attentive. We saw Blue Footedbobbies, Frigates, Sea Lions, Yellow Iguanas, and Sally Lightfoot crabs and shorebirds. We tried the snorkeling but there were no fishes worth the cold water. The beach was beautiful with white sand beaches. The food on the yacht was very good and the accommodations on board as well. Christian handled this excursion very quickly and effortlessly. I would highly recommend Choko.

    A very interesting and beautiful place, perfect to see the fauna from Galapagos. Choko’s arrangements were perfect. From the tours offered in the webpage, we took a bit more expensive one, but it turned out to be worth it. The guide was very attentive and the food on board really excelent!

    On short notice, Choko helped us get a tour to North Seymour Island. On Choko’s website he comments that “you get what you pay for”. The Yachat was not the lowest price, but we feel like we truly got our money’s worth.

    First, Choko make the arrangements quickly and smoothly for us. This included easy payment methods by credit card.

    Picked us up on time from our hotel in a comfortable bus for the ride to the boat. The Yatch has a fine and friendly Captain and crew. The boat is kept in immaculate condition. It was more than comfortable for the 16 people on our tour. We could sit inside an air conditioned cabin, or out on the front or rear decks. They cooked us a fine lunch, including making special arrangements for people who were vegetarian or with other food preferences. They had 2 good toilets, and cabins for changing clothes before and after snorkeling. They also provided snacks, towels, and nice snorkeling equipment. They called us out onto the decks to see fish jumping, proposes swimming with the boat, and other sights en route to the island.

    Our guide, Felipe Ayala, was outstanding. Full of details and descriptions of geology, flora, and fauna. The plan for the day was well described and clear. North Seymour Island was full of mating frigate birds, blue-footed boobies, and land iguanas during our tour. The route is not long, but there was so much to learn along the way! Our guide, Felipe, was fantastic at explaining the plants and animals to us. He helped us to understand the things we were seeing, and pointed out many things we would have overlooked. After our time on North Seymour, we went to Bachas Beach for snorkeling before returning. There we were able to see flamingos and swim with sea turtles. It was an amazing day!

    We never would have been able to find this great trip to North Seymour Island without the help of Choko! We deeply appreciate his lightning fast responses to email and WhatsApp messages, and all that he did to make this unforgettable moment possible for us.

    Amazing trip. The wildlife was spectacular. So close. Snorkeling was fun too although the best part was the main island and the proximity of the wildlife. Would just have been good to have a bit more information about the plan of the day so we would know if snorkeling first or second etc. Price expensive but that’s the Galapagos. Definitely would recommend this trip.
