Daily Combined Diving / San Cristóbal
Four dive and/or snorkeling sites are located on the northwestern edge of San Cristóbal. These include: Kicker Rock or León Dormido, named for its characteristic shape of a sleeping lion, Isla Lobos, Islote Five Fingers, and Whale Rock. Kicker Rock is the most dramatic of the sites, with its vertical tuff cone, rising almost 148 m straight up out of the ocean. Tuff cones are created when boiling lava encounters a very cold ocean, resulting in an explosion. Erosion has split the rock into two parts, forming a narrow channel that small vessels can pass through. Circumnavigation provides the visitor with the best views of the rock. Blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, frigatebirds, and sea lions line the shore. This is an excellent location for snorkeling and diving; Manta Rays, sea turtles, and sharks are often spotted. At the other sites, divers can see sea lions, large numbers of pelagic fish species, Galapagos sharks, eagle rays, sea turtles, and at Islote Five Fingers, there is an abundant display of benthic organisms that is very colorful.
The quality and quantity of biodiversity that can be sighted on the seabed Central hostel make the region under its waters, some of the best places for diving and underwater adventures. A sunken ship is a little oasis in the background sea. This is a place where sea algae, anemones and sponges can be anchored to themselves and serves as a hideout wing time for fishes. Al like a rock or cliff area, a sunken ship is a home for animals that live in the so-called ” deep background ” .In contrast to many animals living on the boat or on the sand.
