Today you will enjoy an amazing day trip to an uninhabited island, west side, after a 45 minutes boat ride from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. Worldly famous, Kicker rock also called “Leon dormido” in Spanish consists of two stunning vertical walls/rock formation of 500 ft. surrounded by abundant sea life, specially sharks, the famous and timed hammerhead. While snorkeling around the walls, you have great sightings of marine life, including sea turtles and sea lions.

During the excursion you also have time to explore one of the many beautiful beaches close to Kicker Rock where you will have time for relaxing on the beach or do some extra snorkeling.

We arrive back to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno early afternoon, so you can still enjoy some free time in town.
