My husband, our two teenage daughters and myself thoroughly enjoyed our snorkelling with Lobo Larsen. Coming from New Zealand, we are familiar with marine animals but this is something else - very very special. The sea-lions really do interact with you and it is incredible and so worth the money. Cecilia was fantastic - her enthusiasm, knowledge and care was... More

This was an amazing experience! Of course, with wildlife, conditions can be unpredictable (and we went during the low season) but we were lucky to encounter many sea lions. Many thanks to Cecilia, Martin and the rest of the staff for their friendliness, advice and knowledge. We will be talking about this for years to come!!

Even if you're only in Puerto Madryn for a day, you should not pass up the opportunity to get in the water with Sea Lions! The team at Lobo Larsen are awesome, we were a group of three individuals (France, Argentina & a kiwi) and Cecilia in the main office could fluently speak to each of us in our own... More

We got along with Gringo and Cecilia very well, and they immediately took us in and made us feel welcome and cared for. Due to weather conditions, we ended up having only a small window of time to take our open diver course. They were very flexible in providing a schedule that worked for us. Gringo is a strict mentor.... More

I have mixed feelings about this. Gringo is a very strong personality. He pushed for us to have dry suits again and again. we were happy with the wet suits and they were just fine, we were quite warm and comfortable. When it came time to try on a suit Gringo asked me if I wanted a large or a... More

The staff were very friendly & professional. Response via e-mail was hit & miss. No deposit was required. Everyone speaks great english & spanish. A brief video was shown in the office about the do's & don'ts of interacting with sea lions. Absolutely no pressure to rent the dry suits or buy the video. We were even given a cheaper... More

Hello everyone, my friend and I did this trip recently and it is not worth it. They try to talk you into choosing a dry suit and buying their video. Luckily we went for the classic wetsuits and it was all more than okay with the wetsuit. We hardly came close to any sea lions as our group was too... More

On recommendation from our hostel we went to Lobo Larsen to find out about snorkeling with sea lions. We were welcome with a lot of useful and helpful information on the whole experience and could ask lots of questions before booking. The snorkel trip itself was absolutely fabulous. We were guided step by step and felt very safe. After being... More
