Then, you will be taken to your hotel where you'll have some time to relax until a delicious welcome dinner is served.

Kicker Rock  

See the Imposing Kicker Rock

Have breakfast at the hotel before going to Kicker Rock.



This is one of the most spectacular landmarks in the Galapagos Islands consisting of two 140 meter tall volcanic rocks located off the coast of San Cristobal Island.



This tiny island is the favorite place for an array of marine birds. On the other hand, in the sea, you can see the great underwater life this site is so famous for.



The natural erosion of this ancient cone has created a channel between the rocks providing the ideal habitat to spot a variety of sharks and rays including eagle rays, white-tip reef sharks, and sometimes even the Galapagos sharks and hammerheads!
