You may see them on the shore all year long. In mating and breeding season, they stay together in specific colonies both in pebble beaches with gentle gradients, and rocky areas. During winter season, they leave their colonies to remain in non-reproductive places.
Places of sighting
Punta Loma Natural Protected Area is just 17 km south from Madryn and we may see a permanent colony of one hair sea lions. In Península Valdés, you may watch big concentrations of sea lions in Punta Norte during mating months, since October to April. In Punta Pirámides, just 5km away from Puerto Pirámides, there is another sea lions’ colony.
