Now you can swim with live sea lions in Nuevo Vallarta! These cuddly, playful creatures are a real joy to watch and even more of a joy to personally interact with. You can take home optional photos or videos of your experience so you can remember it forever. As our friendly sea lions romp and frolic with you, their barks, honks and trumpets will surely keep you amused, and they'll delight you with their intelligence and skill. Pet them, play with them, and even get a friendly kiss from these clowns of the sea.

Our Advice: If you're going to Las Caletas because you want to do the cruise, the snorkel is a convenient add-on. However, don't go just for the snorkel - the encounter is very rewarding.
Nuevo Vallarta Sea Lion Swim FAQ's
Q: I CAN'T SWIM - CAN
I STILL DO THE SEA LION ENCOUNTER?
A: Yes. The water is only waist deep.
Q: HOW MANY PEOPLE
WILL BE IN THE WATER WITH ME?
A: The maximum number of people to a Sea Lion Encounter is 8.
Q: I HAVE YOUNG KIDS
- CAN THEY SWIM WITH SEA LIONS?
A: Yes, as long as they are over 4.5 feet tall (shorter than that and the water is too deep for them to stand comfortably). Kids 12 and under need to do the activity with an adult, however.
Q: CAN OTHERS COME
AND WATCH ME SWIM WITH THE SEA LIONS?
A: Yes. Just let us know at the time of reservation.
Q: CAN THEY TAKE PICTURES
A: No. The tour operator takes and sells photos and videos of you doing your swim. They won't let you do it yourself - then nobody would buy from them! Sorry, we don't make the rules...
Q: CAN I SWIM WITH
THE DOLPHINS AND SEA LIONS IN THE SAME DAY?
A: Yes. You can also check out our Trainer for a Day experience - you get to do both swims plus a whole host of other great experiences.
