  • You get almost to contact the sea lions, you feel very close to the nature of them, strong smell, good experience to enjoy the boys and greats.

  • It's something different if you go with guys, it's free but the smell is one point less... but it's a natural thing about the area, although it's quite strong. Kids like something different.

  • Very good experience to see this animals with my own eyes. The sand side is, for me, rally small. Could be better place.
  • Currently a balcony is being built and should be better. Kids loved to watch the seelions so it was worth it. Long walk but it can be accessed by car.
