Sleeping Lion Rock Day Trip

At 7:30 am we'll meet at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno Pier on San Cristóbal Island, where we'll embark on a boat trip on the waters of the Pacific in the direction of Kicker Rock, also known as El Leon Dormido, or The Sleeping Lion, a natural rock formation.

After an hour and a half crossing, we'll arrive at these extraordinary volcanic formations, do you see a shoe or a lion? On these mounds jutting out of the sea, we'll see Nazca boobies and blue footed boobies.

Later, we'll put on our snorkelling gear and... duck into the water! You'll spot Galapagos and hammerhead sharks, as well as countless sea turtles.

When we return to the boat, we'll have lunch to replenish our energy. After that, we'll go back to San Cristobal Island to visit Tijeretas Hill, El Manglecito beach or Puerto Grande.

Finally, we'll take you back to the port, to end the activity at 4 pm. 

Important Information

  • For this excursion, it's essential that you have been staying on the island the night before the activity. 
  • The complementary activity will take place on Tijeretas hill, El Manglecito beach or Puerto Grande beach depending on availability and season.
