We had a fantastic experience here with Islanders. The yacht, food, guide, staff on the yacht were all excellent. Our trip included a second stop at the stunning Cerro Brujo beach. The main event is of course snorkeling at Kicker Rock. We were provided with first class equipment- full length wetsuits, snorkels & rings for anyone who wanted. The snorkeling was amazing- we were lucky & saw hammerheads, Eagle rays, turtles & a variety of fish. It really was an amazing experience. Our guide ( Jose Luis) was superb & sent us his photos & videos afterwards which are lovely to have- especially his video footage of the second hammerhead we saw. A word of caution - it is deep here & there is a current plus it can get a little bit choppy so if you're not a very confident snorkeller, make sure you choose a company that provides you with all the equipment & safety measures you need. For instance, we were all offered rings (great for kids or if you get tired snorkeling) plus a zodiac was with us so if anyone wanted to take a break or go back to the yacht, they could. All in all a truly fantastic experience!

The rock towers over the water and goes straight down. Although there aren't many marine animals, there are a lot of fish and cool plants along the rocks. There are some sea turtles and rays. The water is really clear so you get to see a lot. Currents are strong and it's a bit freaky snorkeling where you can't see bottom but worth it.

Amazing dive. Don't miss if you go to san cristobal. The hammerheads and amount of sea life was worth the entire trip to the Galapagos. Also recommend Planet Ocean dive shop. top notch.

Did kicker rock snorkel and dive trip with Christian as our guide and had a great time with him providing GoPro pictures. Worried at first as we had 6 divers and 4 snorkelers but very organized and worked out great. Very fun moving between the rocks. Did have shorty wet suits and was comfortable.

Our yacht Theory cruised around the rock formation to see the
beautiful sea birds and enjoy sunset. Kicker Rock is very photogenic, especially during sunset. It is iconic. I also know people can join guided dive around the rock, but we didn't see any divers. Definitely worth a visit.

This is an amazing place for both snorkeling and diving. We booked with tour operator wreck bay diving. Carlos and Douglas our captain were pros at navigation. We left from the harbor for a 30 min ride. Kicker rock has strong currents in the channel and Cold water at 20 c. I would say you should be a good swimmer, at least 12 years in age. We had little kids in the group and they were cold and miserable. There are tiny jelly fish in the water that bite. We had wetsuit n masks in the water. We saw arrays of colorful fish. The sealions are so playful. When u swim in the channel the waves carry you around and its a lot of fun but again you need to be a confident swimmer. The rocks have amazing array of birds on them. We saw starfish and sea urchins. The rocks had red and blue colors of differnt lichen which is amazing to see. Its freezing cold. Gear up- wind breaker, change of clothes. Water, sunscreen. We enjoyed our time!

Being able to snorkel at Kicker Rock is absolutely totally amazing. The underwater world at this location is beautiful and full of life. We met sharks, turtles, a variety of fish and so much more.

We took a snorkeling trip one day and saw delightful things. The next we scuba-dived - with many sharks, a school of barracuda, 20 huge tortoises. The wall was colorful - but you don't see that if you're only snorkeling. The current was robust, but as a diver with just 26 dives under my belt, I was quite comfortable. Also, we wore 2 wetsuits each and several in our group wore hoods. Wreck Divers was our company and they were AWESOME!
