SEA WILD LIFE - NATURE LOVERS PARADISE Swimming with Sea Lions Meeting point at 10:00 10:30 Departure to the islands. During the whole tour we will observe open sea, rocky Islands, dung birds, fishermen boats at work and a Humboldt penguin rookery. 11:30 Arriving to the far point on route, the Palomino Island, a huge sea lion rookery appears, a group come to us playing, swimming, jumping and diving below the boat. Wearing wetsuits we might jump into the water with life vests and share the ocean with them, swimming with them; sometimes the young ones come up and touch us out of curiosity; the old ones keep a 5 meters distance from us. They live in comfort because there are no predators. Being in the water close to the colony is an amazing moment for everyone who likes nature and wildlife. 13:00 heading back, the boat passes amazing rookeries with many bird colonies. Once in calm waters we have a snack talking about the experience. 13:30 arriving to the dock after two hours and a half of experiencing a full sea nature adventure. Includes Transfer on request.

I really enjoyed the tour. It was amazing how close we could come to the seelions. Our guide Jerson was amazing. He is very knowledgeable and spreads good vibes. Besides that, our captain Fernando was great and gave us the feeling of safety by riding through the rough ocean. In total I can really recommend the tour, only the staff members of the organisation team were a little bit unfriendly, by asking us to pay tickets of two passengers who didn't appear for the tour. Luckily Jerson and Fernando brought back our good moode and enabled us to have this unforgettable experience.
