Puerto Seymour (Baltra Island)

Puerto Seymour (Baltra Island)

Characteristics

Description

On the southwestern shore of Baltra island is a pontoon allowing small ferries to the transfer of passengers and light vehicles Itabaca by the channel to the island Santa Cruz and rally the main city of the archipelago, Puerto Ayora.

Easy entrance. The charts call it Caleta Aiolian, but the Port Captain's address is Puerto Seymour.

There are large patches of rocks in the anchorage, but there are also large patches of sand. The tour boats seem to have no problems, but look for sand. The wind seemed to be diurnal in nature and swung us around 180° morning and evening. The anchorage seems to be well protected.
