Detailed description

Swimming with sea lions on Fuerteventura (Caleta de Fuste)

Up close with sea lions in Fuerteventura: experience a touching interaction with the intelligent seals in Caleta de Fuste (Island East). You can hardly get closer to these charming animals. Swimming with sea lions on Fuerteventura is designed as an encounter. You can step into the seawater pool for about 20 minutes and accompany the small pack for a moment. For the sea lions, who were born in captivity and therefore could not (survive) in the wild, the daily training with the visitors is a welcome activity and entertainment. How much play and fun the sea lions' interaction ultimately leads to also depends on the animals' daily form.

The trainers of the small park have decided not to force the sea lions to do anything if they do not want to. Most of the time, however, the gentle seals are so lively that swimming with sea lions in Fuerteventura should be a unique experience for you. Before you enter the pool with the sea lions, you will be welcomed by the trainers and given some information on safety during the sea lion interaction. A wetsuit (optional) and a safety vest will be provided for each visitor. In a group of a maximum of 10 visitors, you will calmly and carefully enter the pool and thus the realm of the seals. Don't be surprised if a sea lion nudges them, jumps over their head or wants to kiss them. The sea lions love to be stroked and hardly show any fear of contact with humans. They are used to visitors.

During the sea lion encounter, the animal trainer will tell you more about the coexistence of the master swimmers, about their biology and about their amazing abilities. Swimming with sea lions in Fuerteventura is an activity for the whole family, especially for children this experience is a highlight of an island holiday. Swimming skills are not required for the sea lion encounter in Caleta de Fuste, which is why children from the age of 5 years are allowed to enter the pool with a safety vest. However, you must be accompanied by an adult up to the age of 12 years. But with the prospect of a unique encounter with the Fuerteventura sea lions, you will also want to be in the water.

Really enjoyed activity, but, the link went down for the photos. They disappeared.

Really enjoyed being with the seals, the assistants were fun and the photos taken were great.... Shame that I couldn't contact the link anymore when the photos and videos disappeared and google only shows it as an error. I DID save them, they just disappeared??! Gone forever perhaps, we did use the professional photographer and paid for the folio.

A special kind of encounter

I've already been delighted with the dolphin swim. But the sea lions are a bit more trusting. Just great!

Begegnung der besonderen Art

Ich bin schon beim Delfinschwimmen entzückt gewesen. Doch die Seelöwen sind noch einen Zacken zutraulicher. Einfach toll!
