5 Traveler Reviews

  • This was truly the best tour I've ever done. Our guide spoke both English and Spanish. Swimming with the sea lions was AMAZING. You were able to just float and they came right up to you. They darted in and out and jumped around you. I highly recommend this tour.

  • This tour was a great way to see lots of animals in one place, so make sure you bring your camera! The swimming part of the experience lasted about 10 mins, but was long enough as the water was strong and the smell immense (as should be expected). Our guide was good and we got a snack too!

  • This was one of the funnest things we did in Lima, Peru. The guide Edgardo and Captain Eddie were fantastic and helpful. Would do this again.

  • This tour was amazing....a truly once in a lifetime experience. My group went in November and although the water was cold, it was an exhilarating adventure. The ability to see various birds, animals and swim with sea lions was unreal!

  • the trip was great. car pick up drop off care during the trip and the actual swimming in the pacific ocean , everything was just great.
