I heard it's rare to see hammerhead sharks, but we did see white tipped reef sharks, black tipped reef sharks, a school of eagle rays, a bunch of fish, and plenty of barnacles. Even though we were wearing wet suits, the water was still pretty cold. However, it was clear and blue. I'm not sure if the tour was worth... More

Nice snorkling and diving, with quite some current however. There are sea lions and sharks and a lot of fish to see.

This trip gave me the chance to swim with giants turtle in the middle of the sea, I still close my eyes and get this majestic feeling of having lived something unique. It was definitely worth the sunburns and sea sickness!

I scuba dived here and we saw a lot of white tip and Galapagos sharks. Turtles and sea lions hunting for food. Worth to go if you are doing Scuba, don't go for snorkeling water its to deep and cold to see anything.

Snorkeling here was one of the top highlights of our week on the Integrity (INCA). Saw sea lions, sea turtles, and sharks in a breathtaking setting. Will never forget it.

We experienced snorkeling at Kicker Rock on August 6, leaving the harbor aboard the “Sea Turis”. It was a nice ride out, with sunny skies and mild seas, and we idled by the shore on the way out to look at some birds. Kicker Rock is impressive up close, and we drove around it looking at the variety of birds... More

My family of four snorkeled Kicker Rock and enjoyed it quite a lot, though after several more weeks snorkeling free and paid places in Galapagos, it´s not like we saw way more things at Kicker than we did elsewhere. If you feel comfortable spending $120 per person for about an hour of snorkeling and a couple hours hanging out on... More

When they say the Galapagos, and Kicker Rock specifically, is some of the worlds best diving - they mean it! Definitely heed the advice when they say to make sure that you are NOT a new diver and have been diving within the last two years or have at least taken a refresher during that time. There can be serious... More
