  • Although the sightseeing and animals were fantastic, the boat is a far cry from the described luxury yacht. The boat is aged and smaller than expected. Snacks consisted of pretzels and chips, and beverages were soda and water.

  • Highly recommend this tour! Convenient pick up from the hotel, informative guide on the boat, and of course, the actual experience of swimming with the sea lions is incredible. If you're in Lima, don't miss out on this!!

  • Warning: the water is a little filthy. However, swimming with the sea lions is truly a once and a lifetime experience. I definitely recommend.

  • Well the smell is something you have to experience to believe it... Other than that the experience is great.

  • The experience was amazing the only thing is the transportation should be on time. It wasn't too delayed but it is important. Everything else. Perfect!

  • Five star to the tour and One star to the tour company. It is amazing to see hundreds and thousands sea lions on a single island, let alone swimming with them!
    The negative is that Other people in my group only paid $40 excluding transportation so don and #39;t book with Vista Adventure on Viator

  • Cruise was as described -we got to swim with the sea lions and saw penguins and pelicans as well!. The crew was very helpful and took pictures that turned out great. Boat was clean and felt very safe. I appreciated the offered Dramamine at the start, the generous snacks and soda on the trip back. Also learned a little about the recent history of Peru as one of the islands we passed was used as a prison. I would recommend this trip as a must for a visitor to Lima.

  • Enjoyed watching 6000 sea lions but bad sea sick.

  • FUN EXPERIENCE - this close up encounter was better than expectedwe joint a small group of 20 people on the boat and had a pleasant trip with plenty of space on board. Amazing to hop in the water with wetsuits together with the wild sea lions ..they were very curious and came very close to you and dived under you and touched tour feet spooky !! .we had about half an hour in the water and plenty of time to take videos and photos.we stayed an hour next to the small rock island with 6000 sea lions awesome !!.the arranged pick up from the hotel was a bit random and we had to wait 40 minutes at the harbor before entering the small vessel and again wait for 25 minutes before take off a bit unprofessional.

  • There are two parts to every review: 1. The experience itself and 2. The company and the service providing the experience. 1. The experience is amazing, the sealions are there, and there are thousands. It is hard to even imagine. Also, the stench of the island is also really hard to imagine. Expect both. 2. The service was......mediocre. Putting on the wetstuit was really rushed, the snacks were almost nonexistent, and everything seemed rather unorganized. There really wasn't much of a tour or anything like that. So its a 5 star life experience, but the tour itself was more like 2 stars, I'll give it a 3 overall.
