The tour begins when we meet our guides and instructors at a meeting point in the city center of Puerto Madryn. From here, we will cross to the beach where we will board the boat that will take us to the point where we will find the colony of Sea Lions.
During navigation, we will be able to enjoy the incredible views of the beach, the cliffs and the city of Puerto Madryn. In the 25 minute trip we can also see numerous types of sea birds and even, depending on the season, whales and dolphins.
We will disembark on a small beach in the Punta Loma Protected Natural Area where we will receive a theoretical instruction on the snorkeling technique, handling and behavior within the protected area, buoyancy (it is important to understand that with the neoprene suit you do not need an extra flotation device since with this we will float), and our behavior within the area, to understand that we are visitors in the animal`s habitat.
Even before entering the sea, the sea lions will surprise us with their heads very close to the boat, expectant, seeking to discover who will be the first person to enter the water to play with them.
Once we are all fully equipped, we will begin to enter the water and little by little, the sea lions will begin to approach us, almost without fear and with great curiosity. Although we will not be able to touch them, we will be able to observe that they will quickly continue with their habitual life around us and including us in their movements. The snorkeling activity will last approximately 45 minutes.
We will return to the coast in the same boat, arriving in the city of Puerto Madryn.
