California Sea Lion Diver
We aim to teach you about the biology, behavior, and distribution of California Sea Lions as well as their conservation status and current worldwide research efforts on sea lions and seals. You will learn how to plan all aspects of a dive/snorkel with Sea Lions, paying special attention to non-impact practices. The importance of Sea Lion monitoring activities will be stressed throughout the course.
You don’t have to have a dive qualification to swim with Sea Lions but it helps! Our Sea Lion Awareness Distinctive Specialty course introduces divers and snorkelers to the world’s cutest, most inquisitive, playful, and enigmatic marine mammal while teaching the proper techniques to minimize impact during recreational dives/snorkels. This ensures everyone has a good time with no adverse effects on the sea lions, their habitats, or their behaviour.
This course is unique to Cortez Expeditions and uses a guide specific to the Sea Lions at Los Islotes, created by the staff at Cortez Expeditions.
