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

  • Beautiful nature reserve of sea lions. On one side of the operational part of the port. In the southern breakwater. You have to endure a little breath haha because wolves have enough scent. But worth the penalty. Also is free

  • In season, you have to walk about 1000 meters until you arrive because they do not allow to enter by car, complicated when you go with small children. Interesting to see them, but they are after a wiring on a beach very small, dirty, and full of debris. All care to be a nature reserve.

  • The place is no big deal but if you have luck you can see many wolves. It is sadly filled with "rags" and have to pay to get out of the car and take a miserable picture
