Even if you're only in Puerto Madryn for a day, you should not pass up the opportunity to get in the water with Sea Lions! The team at Lobo Larsen are awesome, we were a group of three individuals (France, Argentina & a kiwi) and Cecilia in the main office could fluently speak to each of us in our own language! Gringo, our instructor, is an absolutely dude with years of diving experience, he was very competent but also rad company, everything you could ask for in a guide. It might seem like a lot to be paying for something that seems to be over so quick, but having the opportunity to interact with genuine wild animals in their natural habitat is a truly unique experience– a priceless experience in my opinion. There are other companies that do similar tours but I would recommend Lobo Larsen, good gear, great staff, and lots of clear instruction and support both before and while in the water, I never felt I was in an unsafe or unwanted situation.
It is important to know that you won't be able to just jump in the water and swim around, there is a particular way to behave in order to make the sea lions comfortable enough to come close, which involves staying as a group nearly the whole time. Listen to gringo's instructions carefully and you'll be getting kisses from a sea lion in no time!
Thanks for one of the best experiences of my life Lobo Larsen!
P.s If you're planning on getting in the water during the colder months, don't make the same rookie mistake I did, get a dry suit! It's not that much more expensive and you will be grateful from the first second you hit the water. I choose the cheaper option, a 7mm wetty, and suffered the whole time!
