Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Make lifetime memories as you swim with sea lions on a snorkel adventure in the turquoise waters of Punta Loma Nature Reserve. After a briefing at the pier you'll climb your boat and cruise over Golfo Nuevo often frequented by Southern right whales during breeding season from May to December. As the captain steers the boat close to the reserve, you'll hear the the loud barking of the sea lions sunning themselves on a pebble-stone beach that sit at the bottom of white, rocky cliffs. Once the anchor is dropped, you'll don your wetsuit and fins and follow the guide's basic instructions. Then, you'll dip into the water. The sea lions are accustomed to the presence of divers so don't be surprised if they come up and swim alongside you. When your exciting adventure comes to an end, you'll return to the boat for a restful ride back to the pier.

Special Notes:

Fairly energetic swimming is required; previous snorkeling experience is recommended. Snorkel time can depend on sea conditions. Those who are prone to seasickness should take proper precautions.
