To the northeast of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno is an ancient and eroded volcanic lava tuff cone, named León Dormido or Kicker Rock. It is formed by two rocks approximately 148 meters/485 feet, named for its resemblance of a sleeping lion.
The rocks form an exceptional canal for swimming, taking pictures, scuba diving, snorkeling, and observation of species like blue–footed boobie birds, Nazca boobie birds, frigates, pelicans and sea lions. Under water, you can observe Galapagos sharks, white- and black-tipped reef sharks, hammerheads, sea turtles, eagle rays and many tropical fish.
To access this site you must arrange for guided excursions with local tour operators.
Scuba diving, snorkeling, birdwatching, photography and filming.
