The huge male sea lions, having lost their harem to a stronger male on the Peruvian coast, travel north to the waters just west of Salinas where they recover and build strength for revenge. Quit amazing! We always take our visitors there.

We took a cab, it is a long walk from the main military gate, don't forget your passport. The sea lions, about 30 were hard to see & not too active today! Bring binoculars if you have them

If you'd like to see fat, happy sea lions, then this is the place to go. They love climbing up on the rocks dancing and jumping into the gorgeous clearwater of the Pacific Ocean.
