Tour to the Ballestas Islands

Part I:

07:45 h. Our local guide picks you up from your hotel and takes you to the harbor.
At the harbor, you will take a speedboat, which is well equipped with life vests.

Along the way, we will see The Candelabro figure, an enigmatic design overlooking the sea.
As soon as we get near the Candelabra, the captain will stop the boat for photos.

Shortly afterward, we continue towards the Ballestas Islands.

Part II:

Once we reach the Ballestas Islands, we visit the zones where animals are frequently seen.
Among the creatures, you will see hundreds of marine birds, mainly cormorants, and pelicans.

Likewise, you will see also groups of Humboldt Penguins, which are usually standing near their caves.
Besides, you can also see various types of sea lions, which are usually swimming nearby.

On the other hand, it is forbidden to walk on the islands; therefore we will see all the marine life from the boat.
In addition, you will also see a variety of crustaceans and interesting rock formations.

Eventually, we will return to the mainland.
Upon arrival, our driver will meet you at the harbor and take you back to your hotel.
