We visited kicker rock for two dives and it really does not disappoint! At one point close to 50 sharks swam past us, as well as sea turtles and so many fish. It is a trip you don't want to miss but make sure to...More

If you want to see sharks, this is the best place. The boat trip is quick and our guide knew where to take us to see the fish, turtles, eagle rays, sharks, and so much more.

Amazing experience swimming with sharks. Highly recommended. I only snorkelled, but I imagine diving would be incredible.

A great place to snorkel or scuba. The water was clear and we were able to see a lot of marine wildlife. Some of the group saw Hammerhead sharks. Most of us only saw Black Tip Reef Sharks. You should have a wet suit, since...More

Sailing around the rock is amazing​ as there are lots of birds there. We snorkelled at the rock and although the visabillity in the water wasn't great, we managed to see skarks, fish, turtle and seals. A great place to visit.

Seriously, you see everything here: sharks, sea lions, sea turtles, fish. Actually, you see so many fish that you're like "meh, just more pretty fish, where's the big stuff??". I will say that you will see more on a dive here (hammer head sharks schooling,...More

We are headed to Galapagos in two weeks. All our diving is organized except one free day in San Cristobal. We want to check out Kicker Rock. Can anyone recommend a tour operator? We will probably only snorkel because we are flying the next day to another island. Thanks.

we used Chalo Tours and didn't book until we got to the island. In fact, we didn't pre-book anything since it was so difficult finding just dive operators on the internet. He uses the large catamaran that you will see in... More

Hi! I was planning to visit Kicker rock sometime in October but would really like to see a good variety of wildlife, sharks (mainly), turtles and rays. Are the seasonal? Is there a best time of year to go to visit kicker rock to snorkel? Thank you for your suggestions!

Our group of 5 visited in late October in 2016. There was a great variety of sea life but the water temps are lower and the seas a little rougher. We wore wetsuits which helped us stay warmer.
