    This will make you super happy !!!

    This is one of the nicest things I have ever done. You will be completely happy. Once you lie in the water among the sea lions, you will no longer get the smile off your face. The trip along the islands is also worthwhile. Daniel the guide and Mario the Sea Lion guide who takes pictures in jet water were super nice and helpful. Do not expect great luxury on board, but you should not miss this trio.

    Outstanding experience

    Super experience and overall a great day. Our guide Daniel was very nice and told us about what we saw and the animals on the islands. A unique experience to be allowed to swim with the very playful sea lions and then we had sunshine throughout the trip, which just made the whole day more perfect

    Amazing, unmatched experience

    I cannot wait to do this again. A local Lima Peru resident couldn't believe I found this tour...a true hidden gem. Wilson, our guide, was enthusiastic, joyful, knowledgeable, and amazing. They had an experienced diver with us as well to ensure safety. Before departure, they made sure we were all set with sea sickness pills. DEFINITELY TAKE THEM. The ocean is so choppy. The wetsuits were perfect. Swimming with the sea lions was so fun. They are so friendly and fun and cute. A once in a lifetime experience. Best experience in Peru.
