BALLESTAS ISLANDS TOUR ITINERARY

Ballestas Islands Tour will begin with a pick up from your Lima hotel at 3:00 am, and then take you to the bus terminal for your travel to Pisco. Upon arrival, we will get you in our private transport to Chaco Port and begin your fantastic boat ride to the famous Ballestas Islands.

During this boat trip, you can observe a mysterious geoglyph, similar to the Nazca Lines that was carved into the face of a cliff over 1,000 years ago. This symbol is called The Candelabro, and it remains the source of much speculation and debate. It was made by the Paracas ethnic group who occupied that part of the coast at that time, but nobody knows the reasons what for. After this, we will continue our boat trip to the islands, and enjoy of this fantastic wildlife sanctuary that is filled with wild birds and mammals, including sea lions, fur seals, and endangered Humboldt penguins. During this two-hour boat tour, you will come face-to-face with these animals in their natural habitation while you are on board a speedboat. On rare occasions, it is even possible to see dolphins and whales. Obviously, this tour is a spectacular choice for animal lovers and birdwatchers.

We will make videos and take pictures, and then return to the pier to enjoy lunch before we board the bus to return to Lima. Alternatively, you can make an extension to experience the dune buggy ride and sand boarding in the Huacachina desert.
