Kicker Rock is awesome like a landmark. You may see some big marine animals but be aweare that you may not enjoy the strong current that much. And, I can't tell you how to find a trust worthy agency, just don't go with Fan Dive, they didn't tell me no one else signed on the tour with them, they sold... More

Impressive snorkel site. There was a current when we were there which resulted in cooler water (maybe bring a light wetsuit?) and some turbidity. Swam with a school of sharks. Saw a 5' manta ray and couple sea lions.

Quite a sight from afar. Our trip included snorkelling around the rocks. Conditions were not ideal. Lots of swell making it hard for novice snorkelers. Not much seen as a result. Probably a good dive sight though.

Went to Kicker Rock on my fist day in San Cristóbal and was completely amazed by it. On our way there we got to see an bryde's whale, and once in kicker rock and cerro brujo we saw white tip, black tip and hammerhead sharks, blue footed boobies, tons of sea lions and sea turtles. Be sure not to miss... More

Loads of turtles and small sharks to be seen, but quite challenging as you can be in the water for quite some time

Best diving experience. Wreck Bay diving shop was very professional. We got everything on board including a naturalist that explained the wildlife, marine life etc and all the staff speak English. The dive was fantastic and I need to mention that our captain stopped at Isla Lobos for a quick dive to check the equipment for divers and their capability... More

Went snorkeling around and through the rocks. Full of life - in just 40 min, I saw 4 sharks and 21 turtles. Be aware, that this spot is not for beginners in snorkeling.

Great place for some snorkeling. Even if you don't snorkel it's a nice boat ride to see the rocks. Great place for pictures

The water is filled with sea life along the rock face, overhead you have the blue footed boobies and frigates flying around. Being Canadian and accustom to swimming in cooler waters I did not use a wet suite and was very comfortable with the water temperature. We had a manta ray swim below us and lost count of the sea...
