Islote Mosquera of Galapagos


Islote Mosquera is a sea lion rookery, in the shorebirds region: between Baltra and North Seymour. 

To get there you have to  walk after a moist touchdown on the white sand seashore, there is no marked path and you are in your own to navigate. 

If you decide to visit Islote Mosquera, plan to spend at least 45 minutes exploring the islet. 

In june and july, the newly born pups are curious enough to seize and tug on digital camera snaps and nuzzle exposed frame parts. 

Pelicans, herons and lava gulls are the birds seen most customarily. This islet is often visited at the morning of the ultimate day of naturalist cruises.
