Seymour North

Seymour North is a great place to enjoy diving, snorkeling, and land visits. It is a low-lying island with cliffs on the eastern, southern, and northern coasts.

On Seymour it is possible to see frigatebirds, blue-footed boobies, seagulls with a bifurcated tail, lava gulls, and Galápagos fur seals.

Seymour is one of divers' favorite places to do current diving because the dive site is large and the currents give divers more chance to see many types of sharks such as: white-tipped reef sharks, Galapagos sharks, hammerhead sharks, black-tipped sharks, tiger sharks, and bull sharks. Also at this site we have manta rays, Galápagos garden eels, sea lions, barracudas, reef fish, Galápagos blenny, and a variety of cleaning stations. This site is suitable for beginners and advanced divers alike.
