We land this morning at Punta Pitt in San Cristobal island, where we will see a group of eroded volcanic cones. Here we will be able to observe a mixture of different types of lava floes as well as colorful vegetation. At this point, it is possible to see the 3 species of boobies as well as frigate birds, all nesting in the same area – unique to this spot in the entire archipelago.
A short distance away and visible from shore is an island called Leon Dormido, or “Kicker Rock,” which resembles a sleeping lion. It is quite striking and if conditions are right we may be able to sail through a narrow channel which splits Kicker Rock in half. An incredible snorkeling spot, Kicker Rock is home to an incredibly diverse set of marine life in the nutrient-rich water.
