What would the Galapagos Islands be without sea lions? Less smelly in parts but not as much fun.
Sea lions hang out wherever they like; in dinghies, on boats or on the boardwalk, sometimes even on the rocks, the beach or in the water!
On land, adult sea lions won’t let you get too close but in the water, they’re curious and swim right up to us. The young ones don't appear to have any fear of humans but they may give you a stern talking to if you get too close.
A highlight of our time in the Galapagos was swimming with some very playful sea lions.
