A thoroughly enjoyable experience. The cost is 35 euros you get a kiss of Donna or Debbie, Dance with them and they jump over a bar which you hold. If never swam with Dolphins or Sea Lions before I would recommend as this is a one off experience. Photos are 5 euro each which I thought was a bit expensive,... More

We had an amazing time swimming with Donna and Debbie the sea lions. We got kisses, a dance and then they jumped over our heads and splashed our faces full of sea water!! A real memorable day, I loved it and would definitely recommend it! I'm planning on doing it again at Easter time.

It was great fun feeding and watching all of the fish with your feet dipped in the sea. The swimming with Sea lions was a fab experience, all be it a bit short, the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Definitely worth doing on your holiday.

Booked the catamaran trip here and it was one of the best things I've done, paella and champagne all Included, ride on the jet ski and snorkeling. Must visit the harbour to feed the fish. Very entertaining.

My husband and 2 boys aged, 8 and 10, both swam with the sea lions which was an amazing experience they absolutely loved it. At €35 each we thought excellent value for money too. Would recommend !!

We took a walk down here with a hope to do some activities but there was nothing much that we fancied and if I'm honest it all seems a bit overpriced for what it is. Sealion enclosure looked pretty small, I'm not an expert but it did not seem big enough so we decided not to swim/get kissed by them.... More
