Day 2 - San Cristóbal - León Dormido (Kicker Rock)

Breakfast at the hotel. 

In the tour to the León Dormido (Kicker Rock) we combine diving for certified people (PADI or similar) and also clients who have a certain degree of experience. For non-divers we do surface diving or snorkeling . Without a doubt, one of the best visits of our trip.


We leave by boat early from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, we will make a first stop to test the equipment in shallow waters to later arrive at the mythical León Dormido. Here we will dive in a unique place in the world where we can swim surrounded by hammerhead sharks, white and black tip sharks, galapagos shark, stingrays, sea lions, turtles and countless fish of various species. Also hopefully we can meet the great whale shark. 

An unforgettable experience and a good dose of adrenaline. 

In the following link you can see a diving video in León Dormido. 

Lunch on board and visit to the Cerro Brujo beach.

We go through Playa Brava, where we can see sea iguanas, blue-footed boobies, pelicans, etc. and we reach Playa Mansa, a place where bathing is allowed and if we are lucky, we will be aroached by sharks that visit the place to mate (they are not dangerous). The water is cloudy in Playa Mansa because it is an area of mangroves, but it is easy to see them if you stay in the water for a while.

Famous for the captive breeding of giant tortoises, called Galapagos, which live an average of 150 years.
