We went with this company and were very excited after the info we got. But then when we didn't take the dry suits ($30 more) our guide was scaring us that it would be to cold to enjoy. In the end the wetsuit was totally fine! And we enjoyed it anyway. Another thing that bothered us was that we could... More

If you're even thinking about swimming with sea lions, don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Lobo Larsen will make this an unforgettable adventure! We went on the coldest weekend of the year thanks to their "dry suits" (which truly work!) and felt safe and well taken care of the entire trip. We even saw a few whales on our way back... More

I went back to Puerto Madryn after a few months, this time with my family, and I could'n miss the experience to swim with the sealions again!!! Was just amazing, even better than I could remember and than my family could imagine! The Lobo Larsen crew organized everything perfectly, before starting the trip they show us a video about the...

We were promised that with their secret trick the sealions will come and swim around you, play and kiss you... Works every time, he promised, except when we where out there, freezing and waiting, and no sealions came. So disappointed. As we learned later, the sealion pupps are most active during the early hours, but we went in late afternoon.... More

My first intention was to go a make a few dives but after he showed my the video of the snorkeling with the sea lions I was sold right away. I went for the option to go with a dray suit which was a very good idea afterwards. The encounter with the sea lions was a wonderful experience, we were... More

Having been stranded in PM for three days due to a storm we were desperate for something to do, so despite being warned by another diving outfit (scuba duba) that the water was too cloudy to go snorkeling (they weren't taking bookings for that day) we looked up Gringo from Lobo Larson three sane morning.

This is a truly unique experience you won't want to pass up on. All the staff are excellent and really passionate about what they're doing, & the sea lions will leave you smiling ear to ear all day/week!

I went snorkelling with sea lions this morning. What an experience! It felt like they were talking it up a lot beforehand but it definitely did not disappoint, it surpassed my expectations even. The instructor (gringo) was awesome and the method of interaction with the sea lions is incredible! I would say this is a must-do in puerto madryn. May... More
