Cruises from Kicker Rock, San Cristobal
Kicker Rock (or Leon Dormido) is a spectacular rock formation just 5 km off the NW coast of San Cristobal, also known as Chatham, the easternmost island in the Galápagos Islands. They are a remote archipelago of equatorial volcanic islands situated in the eastern Pacific Ocean, about 955 km west of mainland Ecuador, of which they are a province. The islands form a national park, and a biological marine reserve, where wildlife is the most notable feature. Kicker Rock is a remnant of a pyroclastic or palagonite cone, the site of a volcanic eruption that became explosive when lava and seawater mixed.
