i booked a trip there. The guys from the boat were great as I don't know how to swim. They encouraged me to snorkel and they would help me. Always with a life jacket I held to a buoy and the diver guided me all around Kicker Rock. I saw tortoises and starfish, many little coloured fishes and sea ​​urchins.... More

It's one of the most beautiful places in Ecuador, my experience was very exciting, especially seeing sharks, it was a mixture of fear and excitement. Snorkeling we can see some seals and a variety of colorful fish too. I fell in love with this place :)

I went to Kicker Rock to dive, along with some snorkelers and it was a great experience for all of us. There were so many sharks, the most sea turtles I`ve ever seen, sea lions that swim with you and on top of all of that the rocks themselves are breathtaking with all of the frigatebirds and boobies soaring around!

Great snorkeling spot. I was afraid of sharks etc first but there is nothing to fear. I did spent lots of time on internet researching the location and potential shark attacks in Galapagos and here is what my trip confirmed: there is enough variety of natural food for shark around these islands and humans dont interest them at all. This... More

Was here last year, but only to see on boat. This year, we snorkeled the rock. GREAT place to snorkel -- hundreds of large turtles, clown fish, and at the right time, tiburon (sharks!). Cold water around rocks, but really enjoyed it. Sea lions and frigate birds were also all over this rock formation. Depending on angle, you can see... More

You can see easily why this is the best snorkelling site in the Galapagos. As soon as you jump into the water you are surrounded by fish and turtles and can see the sharks further down. If you are lucky a seal will swim with you and you may get a visit from a curious shark, but don't worry they... More

One of the Best places for Snorkling. Snorkeled with Galapagos shark, Hammerhead shark, sea turtles, Thousands of fish (School of fish), sea lions and hundreds of colourful species of fishes. Be aware of sharp rock and tides. Wet suit is must. Take underwater camera for wonderful memories. Jump early and reach fast ans sharks tend to go away with crowd.

Seriously.. if you travel this far and dont snorkel or dive here you missed out on one of the best sea ventures. What you see depends on natures roll of the dice.
