Great excursion. Personal service. Professional all the way. Plus pictures and videos afterwards for a very reasonable fee.

Nice experience, but don't expect too much. I didn't see many sea lions really close. A few passed quickly by, 3 cute heads did pop up from the water just next to me, but only for a second. Many sea lions swam by 10 or more meters from me, which was still nice, but not exactly what I was hoping for after seeing all those photos of people face to face with lions. We were not so lucky. I booked the tour for 8 AM, the night before I got a message that it'll start at 10 AM. That very much complicated our plans for that day. On my voucher, in the email, in the tour description on GetYourGuide, everywhere was 8 AM and no information about a possibly different time (only about cancellations due to bad weather). From the description: "Explore a Spanish shipwreck on Parana beach and spot penguins, whales, dolphins..." - saw none of these animals and no shipwreck. Not the main attraction of course, but since the shipwreck was mentioned, I was hoping to see it too and disappointed not to.
