  • Lima: Swim with Wild Sea Lions at Palomino Islands

    1. Lima: Swim with Wild Sea Lions at Palomino Islands

    Meet your friendly crew then sail to the islands of Callao, travelling through the "El Camotal" underwater, open sea and passing by San Lorenzo Island.  At 11:30 AM, reach the farthest point, Palomino Island, which houses a large colony of sea lions. Here, you can freely swim alongside these great animals in neoprene suits. Then, at 12:35 PM, you will return to the meeting place in Calloa at Calle La Mar 229. Your return will begin through impressively shaped cliffs and islets. You will have the chance to enjoy a snack on board before arriving at the pier in Callao at 1:00 PM.

    The crew were funny, engaging, genuinely happy to take us out to swim with the sea lions. The experience was amazing. I have swum, surfed, dived in the ocean for 50 years but never have I been happier in the water than I was swimming with the sea lions. Their noise, inquisitive and fun nature was incredible. I was fortunate enough to be nibbled on the foot by one! Words can’t describe. Have no second thoughts, do it, you won’t regret it.
