Kicker Rock was one of the excursions I was really looking forward to while on San Cristabal. The promise of snorkeling with Sharks, Turtles, Rays, and colorful Fishes was exciting to say the least but after the 1 hr boat ride out and a loop around the island for photo ops (not many birds were present), we put on our...

OK, I know I shouldn't rate something 3 stars because of the temperature of the water... So I'll give it 4. We went scuba diving with Scuba Eden and our guide wasn't the most attentive, the water was freeeeezing and the viz wasn't great. The sea life was OK but nothing compared with Seymour, Daphne or Gordon Rocks! It's a... More

So beautiful. We saw turtles, crazy amounts of colorful fish and coral and some in our group saw sharks. The currents aren't too bad, but certainly enough to push you around a bit. Several in our group got a few jelly fish stings from super small jelly fish. More annoying than anything.

The "San Cristobal 360" boat tour stopped here for 45 minutes of snorkeling. The water wasn't that clear, only saw a few fish, several sea turtles and sea lions. Our group snorkeled to a cave to see some sea birds. We tried to look for sharks but no luck. I think you need to be diving to see the sharks... More

Did a tour there for 100 USD incl. 2 snorkels and visit of a beach. The tour guide Ivan was the best we had during our week in Galapagos, super interesting and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend!

My visit to Kicker Rock in the summer of 2016 was one of the best experiences of my life. Spending time swimming and watching galapagos sharks, hammerheaded sharks, galapagos tortoises and fish of all different colors was extremely satisfying, and without doubt the best investment in our fantastic trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Unfortunately what you see can never be predicted or guaranteed. You will likely see some cool wildlife but don't be let down if you don't see what you were looking for.
