This was the island excursion that made us go wow. The first time, anyway.
North Seymour Island was the morning stop on our first full day cruising in the Galapagos Islands. We rode the Zodiacs to shore then followed our guide along the path through the island. I was amazed how close we were to the wildlife; in some cases they were right in the middle of our path!
We saw Blue-Footed Boobys.
A Sea Lion pup that was, at most, 6 hours old.
Frigatebirds all puffed up, trying to attract a mate.
Those that were nesting. Baby Frigatebird.
And Land Iguanas.
It was fascinating. The animals had this amazing lack of fear. In many cases we could have reached out and touched them, but they just continued on with whatever they were doing, unperturbed.
I've never experienced anything like it.
