Snorkeling at Kicker Rock in San Cristobal is probabbly one of the most famous tours in the Galapagos Islands and it definetly deserves it. The tour starts very early in the morning at Baquerizo Moreno port, where we’ll set sail. During 45 minutes of navigation we’ll travel around 18 kilometers away from the land, bordering San Cristobal Island. During the journey, you’ll be able to see multiple birds overfliying rocks: blue footed boobies, pelicans, frigates and many more circleling the island looking for some fish to eat.
The main higlight of this tour is the amount of sealife you’ll be able to see all together in this spectacular spot. When we reach the kicker rock, we’ll hope of the boat in order to snorkel around the rocks. At kicker rock you’ll be able to see plenty of colorful fishes, hammerhead shark, galapgos sharks, rays and sea lions.
After an intense snorkeling session, you’ll be happy to know there’s also space for relaxing in this tour. That’s why our second stop is a wonderful beach called El Manglecito where you can lay on the sand along with some sea lions and enjoy the view, the beach and the unique vegetation around.
