A super friendly and very professional treatment! We loved that they were very respectful of the local fauna and at no time did we think it was a massive tour. 100% recommended and the best memories we have in Argentina.

The experience was great! The time in the water flew by and we really enjoyed the company of the curious sea lions! With a thick wetsuit we had enough warmth and could enjoy the experience to the fullest.

Nice family run company, friendly and good equipment, small group of 4-5 with each guide. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides, we had a good experience!

The office staff were very helpful with gear. We had two guides who were very helpful. The event was just as advertised. I would do it again.

One of the greatest things ever. Can't recommend enough. Only complaint is that the tour is supposed to be 3 hours and it lasts like 2
