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.

The crew were funny, engaging, genuinely happy to take us out to swim with the sea lions. The experience was amazing. I have swum, surfed, dived in the ocean for 50 years but never have I been happier in the water than I was swimming with the sea lions. Their noise, inquisitive and fun nature was incredible. I was fortunate enough to be nibbled on the foot by one! Words can’t describe. Have no second thoughts, do it, you won’t regret it.

It was an incredible experience. Don't be afraid of the sea lions the we're just adorable and friendly. Make sure to get over any doubts quickly as you only have 15mins in the water to protect the nature and there is no time to hesitate.

The tour guide was awesome! Very nice and told us many exciting stories and facts about Callao, Lima, Peru and the sea lions. Incredible experience!

It's wonderful,you'll really close to sea lions and on the way to the island you will see the wonderful view.
