Kicker Rock - San Cristóbal

Galapagos Islands


A famous landmark near San Cristobal Island, Kicker Rock is a stunning rock formation. Being the remains of a vertical tuff cone, it rises almost 500 ft above the water. It draws its name from its shape caused by erosion, which some see as a shoe, and some see as a sleeping sea lion, hence the Spanish name, Leon Dormido. It's a great spot for snorkeling and diving, where you can encounter tropical fish, Galapagos sharks, marine iguanas, sea turtles and rays. Above the water, you can see blue-footed and masked boobies and frigate birds.
