    Its a bumpy ride due to high tides but its worth it once you get close to the island. We had a great time swimming (even though I don't know how to swim) and the staff were great. Hotel pick up was on time and very courteous.

    It’s amazing to swim with the sea lions. The guides are responsible and nice. They take good care to all of us. Follow their instructions would be safe in swimming in the big waves.
