We were apparently a bit "unlucky" and did not see Kicker Rock at its best but still saw a few sharks (some people in tje group managed to see a hammerhead), lots of turtles and playful sea lions, great fishes along the rocks. The visibility was rather poor and the sharks are usually a bit deeper so snorkeling we could... More

Absolutely recommend it. We saw and took pictures of school of hammer heads, lots of sharks, turtles, loads of fish.

THe first day we set out from San Cristobal and away into the sunset . It was fun getting settled in our cabin and meeting the crew and our shipmates. That evening the bar was open and we all gathered on the top deck to view an absolutely fabulous sunset and Kicker Rock!!

Exciting, exhilarating, enchanting... All the amazing e words and then some. Lead by the wonderful Enrique from Intrepid Tours we boated out to Kicker Rock to see the fantastic wildlife and we were not disappointed. Snorkelling through the gap with surging waters was scary but worth it. Sharks, sea lions, fish, coral, rays on snorkel. The BLUE FOOTED BOOBIE!!! As... More

Kicker Rock, a thirty minute boat ride from Puerto Baquerizo and the Golden bay is a unique geological landmark of the Archipelago, truly spectacular sights; amazing bird life along the steep cliffs plus sea-lions and marine iguanas on the lower rocks and simply superb marine life for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving..
