  • This trip was awesome! A must-do while in Lima. I was a little apprehensive because I'm a little scared of swimming in the ocean especially with very large sea lions swimming around me but after a few minutes I was fine. There was always someone in the water
    with us in case we got into trouble. I couldn't believe how many sea lions there were and I also loved seeing the penguins!

  • The trip was to long and slow. The islands lost their appeal very quickly. We should have taken a faster boat to the sea lions. That part of the trip was great. The guide who was in the water with us was really helpful in getting me super close to the animals and getting some great video.

  • Swimming with sea lions was after hiking Machu Pichu the highlight of my trip...absolutely loved it. It was also my first ever swim in the pacific ocean so I decided to go big and swim with these amazing creatures. You get up close and really understand how amazing the sea lions are. The guides were great and the day was perfect weatherwise.. Loved it!

  • Definitely something to do once in your life. Pick up was smooth, guide was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, and the sealions were beautiful and playful! Life jackets stunk but oh well.

  • Amazing and very different experience. For some people it may not be as exciting because water was cold and dirty. It was expected but has not stopped people.

  • The service ran like clockwork. Hire car picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back. The boat got very close to the island and we had plenty of time to observe. The colony is quite large and permanent all year round, so you do not run the risk of there being no or few animals to observe. Even had motion sickness for all passengers, but I recommend taking your own as theirs made us incredibly drowsy.

  • 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.
