Patagonian Sea Lions~

Check out los lobos del mar playing in Peru!

This group was photographed in Los Islas Palominos off the coast of Lima.

They were quite curious about their unusual human visitors,

and kept popping up to get a better view!

This bull was hanging out near La Serena Chile.

Southern bulls are more massive and furry than their northern counterparts,

and they seem more threatening too!

These happy guys were playing around Islas Balestras near Pisco Peru.


I am only intermittently near functioning wifi so please excuse my absence, and cheers to you from Los Lobos del Mar~

  1. Great shots, Cindy. Thanks for sharing. As a SCUBA diver, I’ve encountered sea lions and seals on many occasions here on the west coast of British Columbia. I can assure you that they don’t move slowly in the water! Nothing scarier than having a several hundred pound sea lion heading right at you and veering away at the last minute. These species look considerably larger than our west coasters.

    • Yes, I know exactly what you are saying. The northern version were all over the beaches where I grew up and swam. But these southern ones seem perfectly adapted to the harsher reality of the southern ocean.

  2. These have a gorgeous colouring on their fur and they look like they’re having fun in the water. You write that they look threatening … I hope this is correct and that they are quite safe – you seem to be very close to them at some stages. A glorious post, Cindy and I thoroughly enjoy my armchair travels alongside you!πŸ˜€

  3. So beautiful pictures of the bulls, I like special these pictures where they are popping up for a better view. I also think the last one where you have captured the seal in its movement. But every picture are amazing.
