Sea lions

The crew was excellent. Unfortunately it was a cloudy and cold winter day in Lima. The water was very rough so both my husband and I got seasick. We were unable to go in the water. We did enjoy seeing all the sea lions and penguins.
Sea Lion Fun

I had a great time swimming with the sea lions. Take the sea sickness pill offered, it gets rough, 2/7 people got sick. Ask for goggles to look under the water. Be prepared for very cold water and very smelly sea lions. Bring a full change of clothes to change out of your swimsuit after. Have fun!
Good experience

Awesome experience with the sea lions and saw thousands of birds which were beautiful. Would have ranked higher but we had a Speed boat instead of yacht (saw other groups in much nicer vessels) and Not very much information was provided about the species seen.
Response from Host , Jun 2019
We are very sorry we had to use a speed boat instead of our yacht that day. We apologize for these inconveniences.

Tout was exactly as stated, but several were under the impression that you got off the boat to see islands. You pass an old island prison and one that is used by the military. Ride is rough, they offer sea sick pills upon departure. Several wish they would have done that. No wet suit no flippers. Provided a life vest. Should know how to swim to be enjoyable
Stinky

this was on my bucket llist.It was very stinky when you get close but within a minute to 2 minutes you don't even know you're in the smell. The sea lions are beautiful creatures and I would go again in a heartbeat. Just was not happy with my tour operator!!
Fantastic Experience

Will definitely be a highlight of my trip to South America. The guide and staff on the boat were fantastic. Even giving advice for the rest of my trip. I would recommend to anyone coming to Lima!
Greatest nature experience of my life!

This was a good tour. If you are at all seasick, make sure to take a pill before you go. The guide was nice enough to take our cameras for underwater shots. Very cool.

This trip was awesome! A must-do while in Lima. I was a little apprehensive because I'm a little scared of swimming in the ocean especially with very large sea lions swimming around me but after a few minutes I was fine. There was always someone in the water with us in case we got into trouble. I couldn't believe how many sea lions there were and I also loved seeing the penguins!
