    Trip itinerary

    Upon leaving the main dock at San Cristobal Island, this tour involves 5 stops (not the same as disembarking!), in the following order:

    1. Rosa Blanca (snorkeling)
    2. Punta Pitt (photo opportunity)
    3. Bah铆a Sardina (snorkeling)
    4. Cerro Brujo (photo opportunity)
    5. Kicker Rock (snorkeling)


    Rosa Blanca bay Snorkeling

    Rosa Blanca bay Snorkeling

    Rosa Blanca is a small bay situated on the northeast of San Cristobal Island. It’s known for its various small beaches, the main attraction being the largest beach in the centre of the bay that is lined with sand dunes. The unique combination of these dunes and the bay’s crystalline waters make Rosa Blanca an attractive destination for visitors. Visitors can also snorkel in the bay, experiencing sea life including sharks, rays and sea turtles.

    Punta Pitt is a short stop for lunch and a demonstration of local, traditional fishing. We do not disembark here, but can appreciate the otherworldly landscape nearby and watch for various endemic bird species, like the Red-footed Booby.

    Sardina bay

    Bah铆a Sardina comprises two beaches – the draw being their small, white-sand dunes beside the crystalline water, which is perfect for snorkeling. You’ll have a chance to observe (and swim with) sea turtles, rays and sea lions.

    We’ll pass byCerro Brujo, which translates to “Witch’s Hill”, on the way to Kicker Rock, which is characterized by its large rock faces, and where you’ll have the chance to snap photos and observe the birdlife that lives on the rocks.

    Roca Le贸n Dormido, also know as “Kicker Rock” in English, is an uninhabited islet 30 minutes away from the main dock on San Cristobal. It looks like a large rock formation just off the main island, but is, technically, an eroded cone of volcanic tuff (ash). It reaches up to a height of 148 meters (486 feet)! Kicker Rock is also a refuge for marine birds like the Blue-footed Booby and sea lions. The waters surrounding the island are home to numerous fish species, hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, and rays.

      Great 360 Tour. We saw a pod of Orcas interacting with a Sea Lion. Didn’t end well for the Sea Lion, but was spectacular to watch. Kicker Rock was fun with sharks, fish, tortoises and beautiful scenery. Galapagos Eco Fishing (tour operator) was great and provided us with some amazing footage of our day – both in and out of the water.

      My friends and I did the 360 tour on San Cristobal and booked in advance, we were a little worried about paying in advance but everything went quite smoothly. The tour was awesome and we saw a lot of things in one day, we were supposed to do an English tour but our guide spoke barely any….BUT that being said he was our favourite guide of the whole 6 days. Super patient and kind and we had a lot of fun. He was also patient with my fear of snorkelling and making sure to go with me so I definitely recommend.

      360 tour: awesome tour, in kicker rock we had the luck to see thousands of fishes because there were a lot of plancton coming from a sea current. We did the 360 tour other way around and it was better because the snorkel at kicker rock was much colder than the other one. We advise again 2 wetsuit to proper enjoy the snorkel. The second snorkel was great as well because we had the chance to see again other turtles, rays and a lot of white reef sharks resting in the water. The food and the guide were great so we totally recommend doing this tour.

      After booking, I was unable to go on the tour myself, but my friend did go and he loved it. He would absolutely recommended this tour to others.

      Also, as I notified Choko ahead of time that I would be unable to make it, they were able to fill my spot with someone else, and they gave me back a full refund. I am very appreciative of that.

      The 360 tour was wonderful. I highly recommend,
      especially if you鈥檙e only in San Cristobal for a short time, like we were. It gives a good overview of the island, while snorkeling and stopping at some awesome beach spots. I particularly enjoyed seeing the sea lions up close on the beach.

      our 360 tour was amazing. We didn鈥檛 see any hammerheads because it is not hammerhead season, but it was still worth it to snorkel at kicker rock. We saw sharks and turtles and had a great time. Our guide was wonderful, helping my husband who is still getting used to being in the water and snorkeling. He was patient and so super helpful and understanding.

      Absolutely a MUST do tour! We stopped in San Cristobal for 2 nights just to do this tour. I chose this based on all the positive reviews and they were all right! We got to fish for our lunch right off the boat. Caught a big Wahoo and the chef made sashimi with it. The tour was fantastic. We had an English speaking naturalist who was extremely informative. Lots and Lots of fun. I would NOT recommend this tour for younger kids. The snorkeling can be a bit rough but worth it. The water is also a bit chilly. This tour is great for kids age 12-13 and older.I I would also like to add that Choktrip was extremely helpful in planning any activities. We opted not to take the ferry shuttle and to fly to Isabella after San Cristobal and Im really happy with that choice.

      The 360 tour was awesome. We had a great guide, boat and itinerary. The price is steep but the same as the other local outfits we were able to see an amazing amount of wildlife.

      Awesome trip. Guide was fantastic. Great food. First snorkeling spot was great. Saw sharks turtles stingrays. Then caught a fish on the boat. Stopped at punta pitt for great pics. Another snorkel spot and then kicker rock which is fantastic. Tons of turtles, spotted sting rays. Sea lions. Amazing trip. Definite must on San cristibal.

      I had some travel issues in Guayaquil (thank you Delta!) and my flight was moved to next day. I called Choko, he made arrangements last minute and booked me and my family a 360 trip

      Fantastic experience, great boat, great bilingual guide and crew. That snorkeling experience in Kicker Rock was the most epic moment during my Galapagos trip!

      Fully recommended! Thanks again Choko

      The 360 tour is definitely the best way to see San Christobal! The snorkeling was great with very fine equipment provided. We made several stops to swim with sea lions, turtles, hammerhead sharks, reys and too many fish to name. There were also great occasions to see blue footed boobies on the clifs. Thanks to Christian for easy advance booking.

      The 360 tour was very interesting. You can enjoy fishing and snorkeling as well as sightseeing by boat. Our experience was wonderful, thanks to the fishing masters on board. We were able to watch a fight between the birds and Sharks aimed at tuna and Wahoo.

      Very good organized by choko. Tour itself was ok, snorkeling at Kicker Rock was the best in the Tour.

      The best part of this tour was snorkeling near Kicker Rock. Beaches also were very nice.
      We were happy that Choko took care of reservation so we didn’t waste our vacation time looking for tour operator and tours.
      Thank you, Christian.

      It was very fun. Especially it was so exciting to catch some big fish in trolling. And so we could see a lot of Galapagos sharks to eat fish gut.

    • Andy Smith

      The 360 tour was absolutely fantastic. Snorkeling at Kicker Rock was incredible. The bird life at Punta Pitt!! Wow! The snorkeling in the sheltered bay with sharks and hanging out on the most astonishing beaches – amazing. We collected our gear at Galapagos Eco Fishing – everything included. There was lunch, snacks, snorkel gear and our guide took GoPro of all the snorkel dives that we got to download as souvenirs.
      Working with Choko was a breeze. We connected through WhatsApp. It was great to be able to pay him half on the card so we didn’t have to stress getting so much cash in San Cristobal.
      100% recommend this 360 tour, San Cristobal generally and definitely recommend booking through Choko. Enjoy the Galapagos and look after them!

      If you only have a short time for Galapagos is this trip perfect for you. In only one day you see more than other people in two or three days. The tour was well organised and really interesting. Second best snorkeling after Los Tunnels on Isabela for me.
      Choko gives you his phone number and you can call him with any problem. At this moment I want to say thank you again for the help with the tour planning and all other things that can happen. It is every time good to have a local person you can call. I would book my tours with Choko again.

      I cannot recommend the 360 tour highly enough, originally we had tried to book the separate kicker rock tour but it wasn鈥檛 available on the days we wanted so this was suggested as an alternative. I鈥檓 so pleased it worked out this way. We are not experienced snorkellers and for myself the snorkelling at Kicker Rock was a little out of my comfort zone but before that we went to a ocean bay where we saw white tipped reef sharks, sea turtles, sea lions and a variety of Rays this for me was the highlight of the day. Even though the snorkelling at kicker rock wasn鈥檛 for me it would be a great opportunity for inexperienced snorkellers who want to see if they want to go further or for those who want to see whether diving would be for them. The welcome we were given when we went to the tour company鈥檚 Galapagos Eco Fishing to rent our wetsuits was extremely warm and professional. Our guide Fabricio was extremely knowledgable and it was clear that his main aim was to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. My sister didn鈥檛 manage the first snorkelling as she has a minor panic attack, when we went to another bay for some chill out time after lunch Fabricio took time out to introduce her slowly to snorkelling, she has since then managed to completed 3 separate trips and enjoyed Kicker Rock much more than me. A fantastic day.
