Snorkeling With Sea Lions (PUERTO MADRYN)


The SNORKELING WITH WOLVES is a must-see attraction for visitors. This experience is only done in three locations around the world and in Madryn this activity is fascinating because of the closeness of the natural colony.

The chosen site: Punta Loma Provincial Nature Reserve, located 15 km away from the city. The journey from our office takes about 20 to 25 minutes by boat crossing a scenario of beaches, cliffs, shipwrecks, whales, dolphins, cormorants, terns, stories, etc.

Reaching booking passengers shall receive theoretical instruction where the main topics will be: Technical snorkeling, management and behavior within the protected area, buoyancy (it is important to understand that with the wetsuit no extra flotation device is needed because with it will acquire positive buoyancy, will float), and our behavior within the area.

Once inside the area, sea lions will surprise you with their heads very close to the boat expectantly, looking to find out who will be the first person entering the water to play with them.

The time of departure must be combined in the offices of local operator with our sales staff as we need to take into account the natural habits of these mammals and tides. For this purpose the activity is normally done early in the morning, and / or when the tide is finishing up. Current regulations allow visits are not greater than one and a quarter in the area, which the gaming activity with these animals is 40 to 45 minutes maximum.
