Early this morning we had a dry landing on North Seymour Island. This island originated as an uplifted tuff cone and is famous for being the marine bird island.

We had a great excursion and were surrounded by blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, a swallow-tailed gull (the only nocturnal gull), and very arid vegetation. It was an amazing morning.

To finish the day, we headed towards Rábida Island. We were impressed by the unique red colored sandy beach, which is due to its rich iron-oxide content. We finally explored the underwater world of the Galapagos here and then finished the day taking a relaxing walk along the beach and a salt-water lagoon which was occupied by a small flamboyance of flamingos.
