Well-organized and informative, as well as fun and adventurous! We had a great time interacting with the sea lions in their natural habitat. Our guides did a great job of making sure we kept a safe distance, but also helped to get close if we wanted one to touch our feet. The wetsuits were a must in February, the water was not so bad with it on but still pretty cold and I can’t imagine it would be enjoyable without one.

This is my second time swimming with the sea lions because I wanted to capture the experience with a waterproof camera. The crew was fantastic. The captain maneuvered the boat so everyone had a chance to get a good view of the wildlife. The crew was efficient and friendly.

The tour was very nice! Your guide gives you a short coverage of the most important Information about the island and animals. Youll get water and on your way back some snacks. They provide life vests and wetsuits for everyone. It was amazing because the guide tried to get us closer to the sea lions and we had anlot of fun. Really recommend the tour!

It was incredible. They would come up and kiss your feet and rub against you. The guide was really great. Spoke English and Spanish and made the experience more fun as well! Definitely would recommend this.

Does what it says on the packet - you swim with sea lions. They are inquisitive and playful and come right up to check you out. It was really an amazing experience. Our guide, Julio, was excellent - friendly, helpful and informative - and it was great to see penguins and many other sea birds too, as well as earn about these islands just offshore of Lima.

With tours like this I’m always nervous that they’re going to be a rip off: you wont see the animals or the tour providers are luring them to us, or were disturbing them, etc. This tour didn’t disappoint though. There were thousands of sea lions in their natural habitat who were genuinely interested in us. The tour was well organized and the staff was great. Julio even took pictures and videos on his GoPro and sent them to us later!

It is a nice tour. Although there are many sea lions, mostly they don't touch you. Water is deep and choppy and safety vests were not the best.
