Kicker Rock Day Tour From San Cristobal Description

 The day before the guide will come to your hotel to give some instructions for your trip. Then you may try on your snorkeling suit.   Meet with your guide at 7:30 am at Pueto Baquerizo Dock.

Get ready for 1 1/2 hour navigation towards your Kicker Rick Galapagos snorkeling adventure. The day-tour will have two visiting sites. The fist one will be the underwater of the Kicker Rock lava formations. This is one of the most outstanding snorkeling sites in the Galapagos.

On the surface you may catch sight of some of the many birds inhabiting the towers emerging from the ocean floor. You can spot Nazca boobies, blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds and tropicbirds.

It is the underwater world what will really amaze you. Get ready to swim alongside the most iconic Galapagos wildlife. Hammerheads, sea turtles, Galapagos sharks inhabit the area.  The view is also one to remember. The walls are connected below the surface though a 60ft deep channel running between them.

On a good day, you can see the sandy-looking bottom of the channel formed by the two towering Kicker Rock walls. This spot hosts rich wildlife. 

 Depending on the day, the tour will end or begin with a visit to Cerro Tijeretas. You will get to swim and snorkel once more. Another option is a deserted beach (either Manglesito or Puerto Grande) to observe wildlife and relax in the pristine sand. A box lunch will be served in the boat as these parts of the islands are inhabited. You will head back to the boat and return to San Cristobal. Return time is scheduled around 4pm.
