2.5 HoursBallestas Islands Boat Trip

Set sail for the spectacular Islas Ballestas on this trip off the coast of southern Peru. Make sure you are wide awake in order to spot the marine wildlife ahead. You’ll depart from El Chaco Tourist Dock onboard a speed boat alongside the Paracas bay observing the local’s boats fishing the traditional way. 

Start by admiring the famous Candelabro geoglyph, a giant figure engraved on the dunes, followed by the possible theories explained by the Guide. Continue on to the Ballestas Islands, being greeted by the sea lions, which are definitely the highlight of the tour, sheltering in the many caves and arches of these protected Islands. You will also have the opportunity to witness some of the more than 150 species of marine birds, including the Humboldt penguin, cormorants, boobies, and pelicans.

On your deeper approach to the islands, you’ll get spectacular views of the animals on the shores, seagulls flying overhead, and those swimming beneath the ocean. Be on the lookout for the dolphins and even whales during the boat ride. They cannot be missed!
