This special tour provides nature lovers with the opportunity to observe the amazing sea lion habitat at Isla de Lobos -- a national reserve located less than six miles off the coast of Punta del Este.

Board a small local boat or catamaran that will take you to the island’s edge. This tiny island is home to the largest non-migratory sea lion colony in the world. As the island has been designated a natural preserve, landing is not permitted. The vessel will circumnavigate the island to provide you with unrestricted views of the animals.

After about 45 minutes, you will return to the pier.


Wear rubber-soled shoes to facilitate getting in and out of the excursion boat. Tour operates weather dependent. Walking distance to the boat is approximately 500 yards. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
