Isla de los Lobos /Punta del Este

Hi,

We will visit Montevideo in February 2010 for one week but would love to see the sea lions on Isla de los Lobos near Punta del Este as well.

We would be grateful for any information on the journey from Montevideo to Punta del Este as well as on the possibility to take a boat tour over to Isla de los Lobos. Any boat tours arranged from Punta del Este and whom to contact?

Thanks a lot already in advance!

Does anyone have a little more information on this boat trip to the sea lions? Does it take most of a day or, just a few hours? It leaves from the harbor in PDE? And, is it worth the time? Thanks.

Hello!

There's tours from Punta del Este to Isla de Lobos every few hours. You have to go to the port of Punta del Este, and you're going to see that there's a plattform facing the water where you can find places to make this trip. Boats arrives from the port also.

If you have more doubts on what to do there, just ask me -I live in Punta del Este almost all the year-.

Enjoy Uruguay!!

Hi!!

According on what i saw in clubdeturistas.com.uy/itinerarios/turismoenp…

the estimated cost of the trip is USD 40 each person.

I think the prizes are all the same, all the transporters have the same travel with the same cost (all the owners of the ships are associated in a group to not to have differences between them).

Welcome to Uruguay!!

The website you attached is very helpful. Yes, the tour is $40 US and it seems to be about two hours. Perfecto. We would love to go see some sea lions. Thanks. RK
