Diving or Snorkeling in Kicker Rock: a unique spot in the Galapagos Islands

Kicker Rock in San Cristobal Galapagos is one of the most famous tours on the Islands. This spot is a unique place with a lot of marine activity a sea life. In the same place you can see tortoises, sea lions, rays and even hammerhead sharks!

You can do this tour by snorkeling or diving if you have the proper license. The description above is focused on the snorkel format, but drop us a line if you are interested in diving to send you all the details.

The tour begins early in the morning at Baquerizo Moreno port, at 8 or 9 am. During 45 minutes of navigation we will sail around 18 kilometers away from the land, bordering San Cristobal Island. During the journey, you will see multiple birds fliying over the rocks: blue footed boobies, pelicans, frigates to mention some of them.

The main interest of this tour is the amount of sealife surrounding you while you stay in this spectacular spot.

Once there, plenty of fishes of every colour, hammerhead shark, school of fishes, galapagos sharks, rays and sea lions will be surrounding you.
