Once we arrive at the place, the dive guide will proceed to give you the dive briefing. 2 dives are made, the first; from the channel between the two rocks and a second dive in the west corner of the rock. The dive guide will be able to suggest some other site of the rock depending on the sea conditions.

Here they will have lunch on board the boat. They will also have time to take a walk on the beach and do some snorkeling activity.

*This itinerary is subject to change at the discretion of the Galapagos National Park and your naturalist guide. For example, you might visit the beach first and Kicker Rock second in certain cases depending on ocean conditions. We take safety seriously, and always strive to provide you with the best and safest experience.
*In light of the pandemic, we will be implementing stringent cleaning policies. Every piece of the diving equipment will be thoroughly disinfected between uses, and the agency and boat will be wiped down daily or between tours, whichever is more often.
