“Beautiful animals”
Review of Isla de Lobos

Isla de Lobos
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 January 2013

The trip is quite expensive (50USD), but if you get the opportunity to go and swim with the sea lions (ask in advance- they won't always let you jump in), then it is definitely worth the trip. The animals are quite curious and they will swim up to you. Beautiful creatures! The guides definitely need to work on teaching the clients about the animals (they don't put too much effort into it). But it is a beautiful place, unlike anything I have ever seen!

A quite expensive boat ride from the port will enable you to sea, almost touch, one of the smelliest and noisiest bunch of sea wolves. If you miss it, don't feel spoiled.

We rented a boat, there were 4 of us and the captain.
We had asked him to prepare lunch, and he also provided champagne and water. We left around 11am an spent an amazing afternoon out on the water.
When you get info about this outing, keep in mind that you can plan many things (for children, or friends) and that they will gladly help you make this an amazing moment(remember the tip).

The isla is not very far from the port and there are so many sealions on such a small piece of island but it is beautiful!
