One of the best spots for snorkeling, Kicker Rock or Leon Dormido is an amazing rock formation near San Cristobal Island.

This amazing landmark located about an hour and a half to the north east of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, Kicker Rock / Leon Dormido is a remnant of a vertical tuff cone formation, rising almost 153 meters (500 feet) from the ocean.

While we snorkel around Kicker Rock we can spot sea turtles, marine iguanas, rays, Galapagos sharks, tropical fish and if luck is on our side we can even see hammerhead sharks. Besides enjoying the underwater view, we can usually see blue-footed boobies, masked boobies and frigatebirds on the cliffs as well as sea lions along the shore.

This famous snorkel tour also goes to one beach that may be Puerto Grande, Cerro Brujo or Manglecito. These alternatives vary depending on the departure day of this Galapagos tour. In a very comfortable boat for the activity that is designed and a crew of expert native navigators.

The erosion has given the rock its characteristic shape, which some see as a shoe, hence the name Kicker Rock. Others see it as a sleeping sea lion or Leon Dormido in Spanish.


We left from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno at 8:30 am aboard a very comfortable boat and at the hands of the experienced boat owner and his crew of local young people who know the island. After taking advantage of the entire day of navigation we will be back from 15:30 in the afternoon.
