This was a very scary experience for me. However swimming in the deep ocean with sea turtles was amazing. Thank you to our fantastic guides from Galakiwi who gave me much support when I felt uncomfortable. What an amazing experience.

What a great spot to snorkel. I saw lots of marine turtles, fish, and even an octopus. Others in the group saw sharks. It is pretty chilly water, so be prepared but definitely dont miss this experience!

I must admit that I am a little bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to deep water but I could not pass up an opportunity to snorkel around this rock! The temp was FRIGID so I was thankful that our tour company provided wet suits. I saw so many turtles, innumerable varieties of fish, sea lions and jelly... More

This is an excursion worth doing. My group was Scuba Eden and they were great. You need to have a good sense of your skills. I went twice. Once was pretty demanding conditions and some folks decided not to complete the swim. I found it a complete blast - loved the snorkeling here.

We went to Kicker Rock today and I have to say that it was a bit disappointing. The rock is very impressive and swimming in the tunnels was a great experience, but we simply didn't have luck with the sea life. In over 1 h snorkeling we saw 1 turtle, 1sea lion and 2 sharks. We saw the hammer head,... More

We took a tour on the Cindy Sol with 4 others and after other stops we arrived at Kicker Rock by midday. The water was absolutely freezing, even in a wetsuit, but we were lucky enough to spot sea turtles, Galápagos Sharks, hundreds of fish, reef sharks, sea lions and starfish. Visibility wasn't perfect as the sky had been overcast... More

My group of travelers enjoyed the dive experience at Kicker Rock. We had a beautiful day because we saw sharks, sea turtles, marine iguanas and golden rays. Depending on the time of year ( from January to March) there may be nesting green sea turtles. In this place the rocks rise 500 feet out of the ocean and resemble a... More

I went scuba diving out here and my girlfriend went snorkeling. Both of us saw loads of cool fish, black tip sharks and turtles. I also saw some rays deeper down. Unfortunately we didn't see any hammerhead sharks on the day we went out but I was told you normally do. The current are not strong eother so it is... More
