    Kicker rock is made up of two volcanic rocks 140 meters tall, located off the coast of San Cristobal Island. When viewed from the south, the rocks look like a sleeping lion, which is why the Spanish name is León Dormido. From another side it looks like a boot, hence the English name Kicker Rock.

The natural erosion of this ancient cone has created a channel between the rocks that provides the ideal habitat for a variety of sharks, manta rays, and any other aquatic wildlife.
