Full description
Explore the variety of marine life in the spectacular Ballestas Islands, in the South Coast of Peru. Board the boat from Paracas port and see the many caves and arches that have eroded over time, providing shelter to thousands of seabirds and sea lions, all the while admiring the amazing scenery of the Paracas peninsula along the way. See the El Candelabro, a large-scale geoglyph similar to those of the Nazca Lines. Take some photos, while your guide explains the different theories on who created this enigmatic figure. Observe other animals up close, like penguins and pelicans among others. During the tour of the islands, your guide will explain the different species seen, while you enjoy the glorious sunny day and the light breeze.
