Full description
Meet your local guide and depart to the Punta Loma Natural Reserve, the oldest natural reserve in the Valdes Peninsula. This is the only spot in the area that hosts a colony of 700 sea lions all year round. Dive into the teal-colored water just below the white cliffs that are home to hundreds of black cormorants. You’ll sail for 30 minutes in the waters of Golfo Nuevo to reach the dive departure point. After the technical and safety talk, get into the water with a group of up to 6 people to start an easy dive. Sea lions are really curious creatures, and almost never reluctant to play with new visitors. You’ll be able to explore the area for 45 about minutes and get closer to these furry friends, and then get ready to discover other kinds of fauna and marine vegetation. If you have no experience in scuba diving, you can do some snorkeling on the water’s surface where sea lions will also approach. Your tour guide will assist you along the way. At the end of the day, enjoy facturas (classic Argentine pastries) before sailing back to Puerto Madryn.
