Did you know that the Galápagos sea lion breeds exclusively on the Galápagos Islands? They also breed in smaller numbers on Ecuador’s close-by Isla de la Plata. But because they stick to those two locations, t’s pretty rare to see one of these creatures and rarer still to swim with one.
Using a GoPro, Divers Florian Fischer and Patricio Garcés capture amazing footage of this friendly species of sea lion in its natural habitat. Get up close and personal with these fun creatures as they swim around the camera, playing in the shallow waters.
