Guides will meet you, collect your luggage, and escort you on the short bus ride to the harbor.  Motorized rafts, called „Pangas‟ will transport you to the M/C Seaman Journey and our crew will welcome you onboard.  After departure and lunch, the first island visit is made.

PM: North Seymour
Is an uplifted (as opposed to volcanic) island and so is generally flat and strewn with boulders. There are good nesting sites here for a large population of magnificent frigate birds. Blue-footed boobies perform their courtship dance in the more open areas and swallow-tailed gulls perch on the cliff edges.
Despite the tremendous surf that can pound the outer shore, sea lions haul out onto the beach and can be found bodysurfing.
