During this boat tour tour you will see many attractions. Among them, stands out a huge design etched on the slope of a hill, known by the local people as The Candelabra. This is an enormous figure that can be seen clearly from the sea. Our local guide will explain the most popular theories concerning this drawing at the boat.
Afterwards, we will continue our excursion around the Ballestas Islands, where you will see hundreds of birds (Peruvian Bobbies, Inca terms, Pelicans, Cormorants and others) flying above the islands, as well as dozens of sea lions on the shore of the beaches, and if you are lucky you also can see the famous Humboldt Penguins and dolphins swimming nearby. It is not allowed to land on the Islands, which means you will spend all the tour seated on the boat. Bring a hat or a cap as sometimes some birds flying over may drop their droppings and also because it might be hot. After touring around the islands, we will return to mainland. Later on we will visit with a private vehicle the Paracas Peninsula, passing along its beaches and stopping for photos. We will take you to the little village of Lagunillas for lunch. Here there are various restaurants overlooking the ocean that serve mainly fresh fish in their menus.
