MONDAY: BALTRA, NORTH SEYMOUR 
Our guide will be waiting for you in Baltra Airport and once the group of passengers is completed He/She will accompany you to the Archipell Catamaran which is anchored in Baltra harbor. After arrival on board, we will check in and give you general information. You will have lunch. Afterwards you will start with your first excursion to North Seymour. It is located slightly to the north of Baltra. It is a low, flat island, formed as a result of submarine lava formation uplift.  Covered with low, bushy vegetation, it contains the largest colony of magnificent frigatebirds in the Galapagos. There is also a large population of blue-footed boobies that perform an amusing courtship dance when nesting conditions are right. It really is one of the highlights of this island.
