How to get to North Seymour Island
There are two ways to get to North Seymour Island in the Galapagos. First, on a sailing cruise that includes Seymour Ilsnad on its itinerary. Second, taking a day tour from Santa Cruz island.
Start the tour taking a bus from the sot assigned by the operator. This segment of the trip takes 45 minutes until you reach the Itabaca dock on Santa Cruz Island. The hike on Seymour Island lasts about 1 hour and 30 minutes and the trail takes you to the heart of birdlife, such as: red-chested frigates, land iguanas, blue-footed boobies and other island inhabitants.
From there, based on permission granted to the vessel by the Galapagos National Park, you’ll do some activities combined with the North Seymour tour, which are:
» The Bachas Beach: from Santa Cruz Island: You’ll go on a short hike to a lagoon and, if you’re lucky, you’ll see flamingos. Afterwards you’ll have time to spend on the beach or in the water, snorkeling.
» Mosquera Islet: I definitely recommend this stop since it’s the best snorkeling spot in Las Bachas and the hike along the beach is colorful.
If you’re planning on visiting North Seymour, I recommend checking availability and reserving far in advance. If you’re planning to visit in July, August or December, make your reservation 6 months in advance, especially if your party include 4 or more people.

I can help you reserve this tour with local operators that own the vessels. Instead of wasting time wandering around each island looking for tours, you should be enjoying the places you can visit on your own while at the Galapagos Islands.
*We work directly with boat owners and tour operators in the Galapagos, thereby avoiding additional costs, unlike travel operators like Viator, Get Your Guide and Civitatis which rely on third-party local operators.
