10:00: Pick up from your hotel.

10:30:  Departure to the islands. During the whole tour we will observe open sea, rocky Islands, dung birds, fishermen boats at work and a Humboldt penguin rookery.

11:30: Swimming with Sea Lions.  Arriving to the far point on route, the Palomino Island, a huge sea lion rookery appears, a group come to us playing, swimming, jumping and diving below the boat. Wearing wetsuits we might jump into the water with life vests and share the ocean with them, swimming with them; sometimes the young ones come up and touch us out of curiosity; the old ones keep a 5 meters distance from us. They live in comfort because there are no predators. Being in the water close to the colony is an amazing moment for everyone who likes nature and wildlife.

13:00: heading back, the boat passes amazing rookeries with many bird colonies. Once in calm waters we have a snack talking about the experience.

13:30: Arriving to the dock after two hours and a half of experiencing a full sea nature adventure.
