This was a wonderful experience up close swimming with sea lions. The sea lions are numerous on the land and a few swam out close to us. Each boat is allowed only 30 minutes in the water to give space and respect to the animals. We felt like that was plenty of time in the water. We were comfortable in the wet suits they provided. This company was very helpful and careful. We were the only guests that spoke English but they translated for us.

Went with a child (7yo), on a clear and almost non-windy day. On our way there on boat we confronted a lot of waves, so the boat was very jumpy (it goes really fast).
My child was really scared, but once we arrived he calmed down and were able to enjoy it. Dante and Julio were very friendly towards him and the journey back was a lot calmer. The experience was awesome.

Exceeded all expectations; the small group size, the quality of the equipment, the attention from the guides (Lucio was great and really gave my girls a lot of attention) and the experience with the sea lions.

Amazing and unforgettable experience swimming and playing with sea lions! Completely safe and funny activity. They provide all the equipment so you just need to go there with your swimsuit and enjoy, easy! The instructor and the rest of the staff are really nice and welcoming. 100% recommended!

This is an excellent experience and we genuinely would have gone twice if we had more time in Puerto Madryn. It’s a family run operation and they strike the perfect balance between an adventure and a safe activity. Don’t be put off by the small boat used for the trip as this ensures that the group is small. There were only 5 in our group which meant we got plenty of supervision and time to see what we wanted.

We don’t speak Spanish but Lucio has excellent English and he explained the rules for the park and boat clearly and quickly so that we could move on to having fun as soon as possible. Also I am a weak swimmer but thanks to the quality gear I was more than comfortable in the water. It’s fair to say that even if you cannot swim you would be able to do this as they also provided a large life buoy to hold onto at the start of the swim. Once you are comfortable you can go it alone.

Due to winds the night before, the water was quite choppy and the boat was bouncing a bit initially but once we got moving it became clear that there was nothing to worry about as the captain expertly manoeuvred the early waves.

We were given the option of a calm location with less seals or a place where the water was rough but there were loads of seals and we all agreed to try for the rougher waters. There was a large group of seals on our arrival both in the water and on the shore and they quickly came out to meet us once we got into in the water. Once we were in the water the seals surrounded us for a closer look. They come incredibly close then vanish in the waves. We didn’t get any good pics or video on our go pro but for an extra $15 we got some brilliant pics and video taken by Lucio, which he sent a couple of days after.

All in all an excellent trip and one we would strongly recommend.

Me and my partner visited in the summer and got to see so many baby sea lions!

Apparently visiting in the winter means you get to have more sea lions come into the water and play with you because that’s when the babies grow up, but the summer visit was really fun as well. We had one sea lion that kept swimming around us and popping up behind us unexpectedly and making noises to our surprise. It was a lot of fun and it was just nice to have a snorkeling adventure.

The whole team at Madryn Buceo was also extremely nice, friendly and professional. Would definitely do it again!

We actually came to Puerto Medryn for the sea lions activity-it was so worth it! Such frendly and curious creatures, they come to you and they expect belly rubs.
For the ones with seasick: it is pretty wavey, I would recommend taking some sea sick - pills and not eating too much before the trip.

We had a very nice experience with the sea lions. Unfortunately for us, the sea was very aggitated and rough, as the wind was strong the day before. The trip was almost cancelled, but we had no other free time slot to reschedule it. So we did it anyway and the underwater visibility was almost 0. Nevertheless, as we approached the colony, several very curious sea lions approached us. We could see them very well on top of the water, as they were surfacing often to take a better look at us. We could touch them, almost pet them and hug them. So in the end it was amazing. You have enough time in the water to admire also the colony and the swimming sea lions.
I am sure it is even more amazing with underwater visibility and in the season when the sea lion cubs learn to swim.
Regardless, I recommend doing this trip.

We had an amazing experience with Madryn Buceo. We booked the snorkeling activity with sealions. From the beginning, we were
surrounded by sealions. They came closer to us and one of the sealions wanted to play. We could carress him and even cuddle the sealion. A moment we will not forget.
