South American Sea Lion
Visitors to Ushuaia and the Falklands should look out for these iconic creatures
Our Expert Says… "These really are impressively large creatures! There's a sea lion colony close to the docks in Ushuaia, and that's a great trip to make before embarking on your Antarctic cruise or on your return. Visiting the breeding colonies on the Falklands is a definite highlight of your visit there."
South American Sea Lions are also sometimes known as Patagonian Sea Lions or simply the Southern Sea Lion. Some Spanish-speaking areas refer to them as lobo marino - Sea Wolf.
