Fly over the water in a speedboat with your guide, then jump off to swim among sea lions in their natural habitat. Peru's coastline teems with native marine life, both above and below the waves.


  • Swim alongside sea lions in their natural environment
  • Sail aboard a yacht to the Palomino Islands and more
  • Get a close encounter with regional marine life and birdlife


Meeting Point (between 10am to 11am depending on sea conditions) • Departure for the adventure : At the beginning we observe the anchorage of yachts, warships and merchant ships in the bay of Callao. During the journey we passed through the lower 'El Camotal', open sea. We pass through San Lorenzo Island, with rich stories that come from pre-Columbian times. We see boats at work fishing, various colonies of guano birds and Humboldt penguins. • Swim with sea lions : We reach the furthest point, Palomino Island, which is home to a large colony of sea lions (sea lions), where we can swim with wetsuits freely among them, thanks to the absence of predators. It is an unforgettable moment full of emotions. • Return to Boarding : The return begins through cliffs and islets of impressive shapes. A snack is served before arriving at the pier. • Arrival in Callao : Recommended (NOT included), have lunch in Chucuito or La Punta, visit the naval museum, the Abtao Submarine or the Real Felipe fortress.
