North Seymour (Spanish: Isla Seymour Norte) is a small island near to Baltra Islandmarker in the Galapagos Islandsmarker. It was formed by uplift of a submarine lava formation. The whole island is covered with low, bushy vegetation.

The island is named after an English nobleman, Lord Hugh Seymour. It has an area of 1.9 km² and a maximum altitude of 28 metres. This island is home to a large population of blue-footed boobies and swallow-tailed gulls. It hosts one of the largest populations of frigate birds.

North Seymour has a visitor trail approximately 2 km in length crossing the inland of the island and exploring the rocky coast.

The stock for the captive breeding program of the Galapagos Land Iguana is descended from iguanas which William Randolph Hearst translocated from Baltra Islandmarker to North Seymour Island in the 1930s.
