Tours Sensitive products Activities with Animals Nature & adventure

Nature lovers? You will sail the waters of the South Pacific and explore the attractive marine life of the Callao Islands while swimming among sea lions - a must!


  • These islands of Callao can be visited at any time of the year.
  • Swimming with sea lions
  • It is the safest area for tourist activity.


Itinerary At 10:00 a.m. we will meet at Calle La Mar to board our speed boat that will take us to visit the islands of Callao. During the crossing, we will enter the South Pacific, admire impressive rock formations and see fishing operations up close. We will sail by El Camotal, an island submerged underwater after a strong earthquake, the remains of which can be seen at low tide. We will approach San Lorenzo to discover why it is popularly known as the 'mysterious island'. In addition to housing a naval base, this island hides cemeteries of Chilean soldiers and more than 20 pre-Inca archaeological sites. From the ship, we will see El Fronton Island, whose main attraction is the ruins of the prison of the same name, famous for housing Shining Path prisoners in the 1980s. We will also admire the Cavinzas Islands, a group of rocky islands and islets with caves and natural caverns, home to an important colony of Humboldt penguins. We will skirt the Palomino Islands to get a close look at the intact ecosystem of guano birds and the impressive colony of more than 8,000 sea lions that inhabit this area. We will anchor near the coast so that those who wish can swim among these playful animals. After exploring the Callao Islands by boat, we will return to the mainland. The tour ends at the same meeting point in Callao at 13:00 pm.
