The snorkeling itself was very nice, but you are in the water for maximum 45 minutes! but gringo and the guy that works... More

We went snorkeling with the Sea Lions back in August and thoroughly enjoyed the trip with Lobo Larsen. It is quite expensive but after the magical experience of playing with the baby Sea Lions up close in the water we felt it was well worth it. Gringo was a very knowledgeable and trustworthy guide, and although the waves were quite... More

The tour was well organize, but once we get to snorkeling we saw only a few sea lions, and they were scared of us. Our tour guide was nice but the price is too much (I ve pay 150$, that's also because they try in all the way to make you buy the dry suit, which is not needed -... More

We went with this company and were very excited after the info we got. But then when we didn't take the dry suits ($30 more) our guide was scaring us that it would be to cold to enjoy. In the end the wetsuit was totally fine! And we enjoyed it anyway. Another thing that bothered us was that we could... More

If you're even thinking about swimming with sea lions, don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Lobo Larsen will make this an unforgettable adventure! We went on the coldest weekend of the year thanks to their "dry suits" (which truly work!) and felt safe and well taken care of the entire trip. We even saw a few whales on our way back... More

We were promised that with their secret trick the sealions will come and swim around you, play and kiss you... Works every time, he promised, except when we where out there, freezing and waiting, and no sealions came. So disappointed. As we learned later, the sealion pupps are most active during the early hours, but we went in late afternoon.... More
