These two islands are a world within themselves. In the morning, we visited North Seymour Island, where we observed nesting seabirds from a close distance. Two species of frigatebirds nested near blue-footed boobies. We enjoyed observing a colony of sea lions, marine iguanas, and crabs. In the afternoon, we navigated to Rabida Island with its striking red sand beach. We had a wet landing and explored the island’s underwater world, which is rich in wildlife. After our time in the water, we took a stroll along the beach to see nesting flamingos and sea lions resting on the sand. This was a full day of expeditions in the Galapagos Islands.
