    It’s amazing to swim with the sea lions. The guides are responsible and nice. They take good care to all of us. Follow their instructions would be safe in swimming in the big waves.

    30-45 mins, which feels like plenty of time. About that time the Sea Lions began to lose interest in our group, and swam away.
