Area: Callao Islands, Lima, Peru. What to do in Lima with the entire family, children and adults? 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. Tour around the Callao Islands English / Spanish speaking Guidance Wetsuit Life Vests Swim among Sea Lions Snack on Board Insurance while in boat Not included Masks, Fins Binoculars Rain coats Insurance while in water

Good overall experience. Good business idea. Good general coaching by guides. Poor biological and ecological information on animals, poor safety management, like old and deficient life vests, very difficult to get back on board

Very friendly company who spoke good English. The boat was clean, but no bathroom for a 3 hour trip. Swimming with the seals was exhilarating. Small snacks provided on the way back.

The staff were well organized and friendly. They especially accommodated the younger kids by giving them boxes to stand on so they could see over the bow and letting them steer the boat for a minute. They did not rush people who were putting on...More
