After agreeing to this ripoff, i asked to check my equipment before we go to the... More

Upon returning from this excursion, my husband and I were exhilarated by what we had just experienced. Being underwater while sea lions swam around us was incredible! It was only later we realized it was the encounter with sea lions that was so exciting but which also (initially) masked the shockingly poor quality of service this vendor provided. So, while...

I have been diving for over 15 years in the US, Caribbean, Mexico, Ecuador, Chile and Thailand and this is one of the top 3 experiences by far. The dives: Snorkeling and scuba diving with the sea lions was so much fun. They were playful (very similar to a puppy), gentle and curious. My wife had a very good experience... More

Very nice crew, good warm wetsuits. Spent 45 minutes with sea lions. The sea lions come very close, chewing on your fingers and swimming all around you. Ride out was 25 minutes. They have lockers and showers at shop so you don't take anything with you on the boat. They give you water, juice or coffee when done.

Scuba Duba offers excellent service. We visited Puerto Madryn in October 2016 and booked Scuba Diving with Sea lions an additional wreck dive. I have been Scuba diving in many different countries and with many different dive companies and I have to say Scuba Duba is amongst the best. The staff at Scuba Duba is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They... More

Service offered was excellent. Also, it is noticeable how modern the dry suits were (requires specialised certification). If it were up to me I'd recommend going on the snorkelling with sea lions on a cold a rainy day as otherwise the place can be quite crowded as all operators go to the same spot. If you are going however this... More

A friendly run activity which takes you up close to sea lions in a protected area. On the day we went the water was still disturbed after a heavy storm and the sky was a bit cloudy. Despite this it was a fun trip and we did get close to a few sea lions. For sure if the water had... More
