It is a life experience. One can go to see the Nasca lines, or even Machu Picchu and they are fantastic... but they are ruins of past civilizations. Swimming with sea lions is like "Dances with Wolves", it is something vital! It's wonderful when a little one of just 6 months comes to you and looks at you. And then also fabulous Jaime, the photographer, who was attentive to everyone and taking fantastic professional photos that he sends us a few hours after the excursion.

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
