  • Marvel at the incredible sea life
  • Watch marine animals such as penguins and sea lions
  • Explore the Ballestas islands and take a look to the candelabrum


Visit the Ballestas Islands, also known as the Peruvian Galapagos. Marvel at the spectacular marine life and see animals such as penguins, sea lions and guano birds. This is a tour that always starts in the morning, because it is easier to navigate, there is less wind and less waves. You will board a speedboat to venture out to discover the beautiful Ballestas Islands. The Ballestas Islands are rock formations where penguins, sea lions and thousands of birds live. This place is the home of these animals and some animals only visit them during the breeding season. During the tour, the guide will explain about the history of the islands, since they used to be exploited for the extraction of bird guano. This guano is widely used for the manufacture of excellent quality fertilizers. In addition to these interesting factors, the guide together with the captain will go to some animals, such as sea lions, so you can see them up close. Before returning to the port, you will see the famous chandelier, which is a drawing made in the sand, supposedly by the ancient pre-Inca culture 'the Paracas'.
