I stayed in Caleta de Fuste with my daughter for one week. We were walking along the coastal path, when we saw this inexcusable tourist attraction. In the day and age of conservation and animal protection, I cannot understand why this atrocity is permitted to exist. Sea lions can swim at burst speeds of up to 25 miles per hour,... More

Next to the Marina Hotel & Complex. Especially popular with Young Children. The Seals are regularly fed/rewarded for doing tricks. There is a mock Pirate Ship Next to the Seal Pool

Amazing experience swimming with the sealions. We were in the pool area for 30mins in total and got to have our photos taken, one where the sea lion kisses you, one as if you are tickling the sea lion and one when the sealion jumps over you. Very good value for money and the photos are emailed to you very... More

The lifeguard was very attentive creating a safe and fun environment. Life jackets were offered for kids and adults. Limited no of people allowed..cannot buy tickets in advance. Limited seating and storage... More
