Meals not included
Transfer to the pier and board a boat for the ride to the scenic Ballestas Islands. Though much smaller in scale, these islands represent Peru’s own version of the Galápagos Islands. The Paracas Peninsula and nearby Ballestas Islands comprise the most important wildlife sanctuary on the Peruvian coast. You’ll marvel at the famous Candelabra—a giant figure in the style of the Nazca drawings etched into the coastal hills. While cruising around the Ballestas Islands, you’ll have the opportunity to watch many different kinds of marine birds, including the frequently observed Guanay cormorant, Peruvian booby and Peruvian pelican. Humboldt penguins, Chilean flamingoes and large colonies of sea lions can also be found here.
Please note: There are no restrooms on board the open vessel. Depending upon sea conditions, this tour may depart directly from the ship’s pier. Guests prone to motion sickness should take the appropriate medication. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed. Tour duration may be extended by one hour due to weather conditions.
