We enjoyed the ride to the sea lions from the first second. We have seen a lot of different animals and our tourguide and the boatsman were great as well. The whole group had a lot of fun. Last stop if the tour was swimming...More
Head to the marina club in the morning, or upgrade your tour to include a handy hotel pickup from the Miraflores district. Board your speedboat and zip out toward Palomino Island and the Guanera Islands (Islas Guaneras) nature reserve.
Pass San Lorenzo Island as your guide sheds light on the area’s rich pre-Columbian history. Spot fishing boats bobbing on the water, and keep watch for native bird colonies and Humboldt penguins.
On arrival at Palomino Island—home to a large colony of sea lions—don your neoprene wetsuit and jump into the rolling waves. Splash among the wild sea lions, and enjoy an up-close experience with some of South America’s finest swimmers. With no natural predators to worry about, the sea lions can be surprisingly friendly and bold.
After your memorable swim, snack while enjoying sweeping views over soaring cliffs and hidden islets en route back to the marina club.

It’s winter here in Lima and we were a bit worried about the temperatures but honestly once you get in to the water, the thrill of swimming close to those playful sealions distracts from the cold. Our guide Renán and captain Segundo did an excellent...More
