    It was wonderful! Incredible to see so many whales so close! But the entire day was awesome! We saw so many animals from Patagonia Atlántica, Guanaco, Mara, Pingüino, Sea elephants and more! Plus we had amazing explanations about nature and animals od the peninsula thanks to the guide! Really worth the price I recommend 100%!

  • Puerto Madryn: 3-Hour Snorkeling Trip with Sea Lions

    2. Puerto Madryn: 3-Hour Snorkeling Trip with Sea Lions

    Explore a Spanish shipwreck on Parana beach and spot penguins, whales, dolphins, and more in the Punta Loma Natural Reserve before jumping in the water to interact with the sea lions in their natural habitat. These curious animals are not trained nor fed, yet are friendly and used to humans. With the help of an experienced guide, you will learn more about these playful animals in this unique and unforgettable experience.  Choose between hotel pickup and drop-off in Puerto Madryn or come directly to the meeting point where you will be fitted with a neoprene suit before heading down to the water to hop on the boat. After 3 hours of snorkeling and touring, the group will return to the dive center for hot drinks.

    The office staff were very helpful with gear. We had two guides who were very helpful. The event was just as advertised. I would do it again.

You’ll sail for 30 minutes in the waters of Golfo Nuevo to reach the dive departure point. After the technical and safety talk, get into the water with a group of up to 6 people to start an easy dive. Sea lions are really curious creatures, and almost never reluctant to play with new visitors. You’ll be able to explore the area for 45 minutes to get closer to these furry friends, and then get ready to discover other kinds of fauna and marine vegetation. If you have no experience in scuba diving, you can do some snorkeling on the water’s surface where sea lions will also approa...

A super friendly and very professional treatment! We loved that they were very respectful of the local fauna and at no time did we think it was a massive tour. 100% recommended and the best memories we have in Argentina.

Nice family run company, friendly and good equipment, small group of 4-5 with each guide. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides, we had a good experience!
