What to bring
Know before you go
- There will be a photographer aboard and photos will be available for purchase after the tour on the spot
- It is highly recommended that you eat a very light breakfast on the day of your tour to avoid seasickness; seasickness medication is provided
- Bring a warm jacket, sunscreen, and sunglasses as the weather is very changeable
- You will be entering a nature reserve; please try to make as little impact as possible by not throwing waste into the sea and by not touching the animals while swimming
- The sea lions are friendly and harmless animals; you don't need to be scared.
- Please be aware that Sea Lions, Humboldt Penguins and all animal life in these islands have a strong smell that can be uncomfortable for some people. People usually get used to it after a few minutes.
- This part of the pacific ocean is fed by the Humboldt Current. That means the water temperature varies from 7 to 19 degrees Celsius depending on the time of year. Neoprene swimsuits are available.
