The tour costs about $80 for snorkelers and $160 for divers and includes a stay at a beach closeby, two immersions for divers respectively the snorkelling as well as lunch, towels and snorkeling/diving equipment. It is the most famous thing to do on San Cristobal and this isn't the most famous thing to do without a reason. You can see... More

The current was very strong and I opted to stay in the boat but my friend saw amazing fish and even sharks.

Great experience. Do check the water conditions, I understand they can vary in clarity. We had an amazing day, the bluest water I ever saw and over 15 meters visibility while snorkelling.

Great snorkeling around a cool rock formation. The water was not so warm so make sure you get a good wetsuit or you wont stay in the water for so long. We saw galapagos sharks, sea turtels, eagle rays, sea lions, great schools of fish and many different tropical fish. A great day tour.

The beauty of this rock formation is complimented by the wonderful snorkeling and the excellent care of the Naturalist escorts. The rock is home to thousands of birds.

This was by far my favorite snorkeling spot in Galapagos. I never thought I'd swim with Hammerhead sharks! The abundance of sealife here is staggering and the beauty of the place is utterly breathtaking - much like the rest of Galapagos - but Kicker Rock was just magical. I'll never forget it.

Unbelievable snorkeling spot. Admittedly, we were probably lucky, because only five minutes into our tour, we swam right over a big school of hammerheads. We saw a bit over ten, but there were probably many many more. Visibility was really bad, as is normal this time of year, but despite that, we saw hundreds of sharks, many big sea turtles,... More

We saw Galapagos Sharks and a huge wall/school of fish during our dive here. Visibility was about 7 meters. Water temperature was 18 defrees on 20m. There is some current. Best dive site on San Christobal!

Went diving here, it blew my mind. I don't think snorkelers will be able to see much - a lot of the action is deep underneath. Unless you're lucky and come across some manta rays! We saw abundance of marine life down there - galapagos sharks and sea lions feeding from a hurricane school of salema fish. Probably saw about... More
