My first intention was to go a make a few dives but after he showed my the video of the snorkeling with the sea lions I was sold right away. I went for the option to go with a dray suit which was a very good idea afterwards. The encounter with the sea lions was a wonderful experience, we were... More

Having been stranded in PM for three days due to a storm we were desperate for something to do, so despite being warned by another diving outfit (scuba duba) that the water was too cloudy to go snorkeling (they weren't taking bookings for that day) we looked up Gringo from Lobo Larson three sane morning. He went straight into marketing... More

This is a truly unique experience you won't want to pass up on. All the staff are excellent and really passionate about what they're doing, & the sea lions will leave you smiling ear to ear all day/week!

I went snorkelling with sea lions this morning. What an experience! It felt like they were talking it up a lot beforehand but it definitely did not disappoint, it surpassed my expectations even. The instructor (gringo) was awesome and the method of interaction with the sea lions is incredible! I would say this is a must-do in puerto madryn. May... More

I just went on the sea lion snorkeling excursion, and took my PADI wreck diving specialty course and dry suit diving specialty course with Lobo Larsen. It was an easy dive shop to work with, and my instructor Fransisco (El Gringo) was great. Firstly, snorkeling with sea lions was just so fun. They´re playful creatures and they will swim around...

My hostel recommended this company but after my experience and another couple I met I would say "go with another company". They say the maximum is 8 but they take more. They say the video is personalised but if there are too many people on the tour it isn´t and they completely lost my video (which wouldnt be a big... More

We found the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly cecilia and gringo. They really made the experience excellent. I did not purchase the DVD since the price was pretty steep and I just used my own waterproof digital camera, which gave me excellent videos and photos for free. From the beach, we were picked up in a boat and... More

We forgot 1000 pesos cash on their counter (stupid us). They phoned our hostel the next day to ask if we had forgotten the money there! Really unbelievably honest people. Apart from that the actual service was great. We did the snorkeling with the sea lions, which is really an amazing experience. A bit short since you only get 45... More
