Sealions And Fur Seals - Other Activity Cabo Polonio - Uruguay

Cabo Polonio is an excellent place to observe sealions and fur seals. The less common fur seals can be identified through having a smaller body than the sealions and, as their name suggests, they are furrier. The delightful animals are particularly abundant in numbers during September/October, when you could ask your hotel or a local fisherman to take you out on a boat to circle the four nearby islands for a closer look. The creatures are least visible during February.

On the beaches, especially close to the lighthouse.
