We spent 2 days scuba diving with the Bucea Hoy team. Pato was kind enough to prepare a special program for us, with a Dive Against Debris certification and some dives related to environment protection. His team of instructors was serious and helpful, everything was very well organized. All rented equipment was great quality and in good shape.

Super organized very helpful staff and efficient team. Even when the weather doesn’t cooperate it is still a very cool experience. While you may not have a close encounter there are tons of sea lions to see watch and hear.

We did the snorkelling with sea lions and it was just amazing. The team was very nice and helpful and the wetsuits, googles, snorkels and flippers were well maintained in in perfect technical condition. Drinks, pastries and the videos (one of the guides had a GoPro) were included in the price. We can only highly recommend this great activity!! Thanks a lot to the whole team for this great experience!

Please be advised that the chances of having an interaction with the Sea Lions in the water are very slim. When our boat approached the Sea Lion colony, we were told to stay huddled together in the water. There were 8 of us. On this day, a couple of Sea Lions swam by quickly and a couple swam under us, but none of them stopped. There were 2 other snorkeling groups in the water and it was the same for them. Also, the water was very merky, so the visibilty underwater was very bad. Not worth the money and the time.

Hi Jackes, we are sorry about your experience, but you were notice before about the features of the trip , We are going to a natural reserve with wild life, the sea lions are not trained, so depends on them. ussualy we have a lot of interaction, its not a circus or a water park. The sea lions decide when and how, we dont push them, because we respect their enviroment and laws. Also, water conditions its part of the forecast, we cannot do nothing to solve this issues. its natural interaction with wild life on a natural reserve, as you comment, the other groups have the same experience, and no one claim, or feel disappointed, because they understand about how its the trip. thank you.

Honestly this was the best interactive experience in my life. We came to Puerto Madryn by cruise. Departure point is an easy 15mins walking distance to the pier. While on the boat the guide gave instructions on safety and how to interact with sea lions etc. Then came the fun part of playing with these wild animals! Sea lions are adorable and docile in some way. If you can't swim just like me, don't worry as the wetsuit they give will keep you floating in the water at ease. Guide and captain are very attentive and humorous. Julianna ( excuse me if I spell her name wrong) is super helpful and responds to queries very quickly and thoroughly. All in all this is a must do in Puerto Madryn. If you are keen for some adventure don't look at others come straight to Bucea Hoy and you won't regret.
