San Rafaelito sea lion colony is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Mexico. The maximum depth is 101-110ft/31-34m. The average visibility is 61-70ft/19-21m.

San Rafaelito is a small rocky island south of Balandra Bay and home to about 30-40 sea lions. It has one of the most impressive shallow water colonies in La Paz on its east side and a deep wall on the west, making for an interesting dive and a chance to see some different types of reef on the same dive. The sea lions are just as playful as those at Los Islotes and you can observe them while diving in the shallow grotto’s of the island.
