North Seymur.– It is an uninhabited island. Its formation is related to an uplift of the underwater layer that resulted in a highly eroded flat rock surrounded by hazards. Here, the marine base is still evident, giant rocks and shells are found everywhere. This small island is one of the most important fishing grounds for seabirds.

 

Bartolome.- This small island is located in the center of the archipelago. The diversity and richness of this island is related to the upwelling phenomenon. There are great opportunities to snorkel with penguins and sea lions on a golden sand beach at the foot of the popular Pinnacle Rock.
