  • The South breakwater, there to walk enough to get up here. The sidewalks are in the best conditions and some sides directly not there. The place is interesting, wiring of through can shoot animals. It is for a short visit.

  • Sea Lions reserve is located on the southern breakwater in Mar del Plata. The road is designated and any GPS indicates it. I suggest reading about the reserve before going to understand a little more about the wolves pulled in a beach. There is some info on the page of the port of Mar del Plata. We were lucky to see a group of Argentina Wildlife Foundation by cleaning the beach of all the garbage that brings the sea to protect the wolves and the relationship and portions of these with the people who cleaned the place. Very nice for children

  • Must stop before entering is to the breakwater South. The seals resting and socializing. Very good opportunity to learn about these magnificent marine animals.

  • I liked. This cute to go with guys. Tour short but good. More posters would miss with info about the animals and that clean more. The poor Lions sleep about the trash

  • A way of seeing different sea lions. They are close and you can feel how they are. Non-virtual reality. I imagine that in the future the authorities of Mar del Plata sedated account of the potential that has the reserve and will adapt the place into tourism and visitors. A good posters would come more than good and would provide information necessary for the non-expert eye.

  • It is great to see so many wolves pity that it is so much trash around and do not put personal to clean.
