Los Islotes sea lion colony is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Mexico. The maximum depth is over 150ft/46m. The average visibility is 61-70ft/19-21m.

The underwater typography at Los Islotes is amazing, with one of the islets forming an arch that divers can pass through that is often filled with silver sardines, a shimmering mass of small bait-fish that makes for excellent photographs and a fun swim through. The north side of Los Islotes is littered with large boulders and drops down to about 30m/100ft into a flat, sandy bottom. In the shallows you will see many sea lions and in the deeper reef a chance for large diamond stingrays, white-tip reef sharks, turtles and mobula rays. The southern side of Los Islotes is a shallow sandy basin with more hard coral growth and shallow reefs where juvenile sea lions are tended by the adult sea lions.
