Seymour Norte

SEYMOUR NORTE

Is a low flat island that was uplifted from the sea by underground seismic activity. The visitor trail on North Seymour is approximately (2 km) in length crossing the inland and exploring the rocky coast. Along the way the trail passes colonies of blue-footed boobies and magnificent frigate birds. Returning to the coast Daphne Major and Minor can be spotted off in the distance and body surfing sea lions play closer to shore. Along the shoreline marine iguanas, white coral and black lava rocks complete the visit to North Seymour.
