What to expect?


Pass By: Islas Ballestas, Paracas, Ica Region

  • The tour starts with pickup from your hotel within Paracas at 7:45 am, heading towards the Marina Turistica, where you will board your private speedboat to begin your adventure to the stunning Ballestas Islands.

  • On the way, you’ll stop at the Paracas Peninsula to see the enigmatic figure of the Candelabro, a stunning design drawn on the side of a hill in the Peninsula. Nobody knows for sure who did it or why, although there are many hypotheses regarding its origin. Some believe it is related to the Nazca Lines, but as of yet, no evidence has been found to support that claim.

  • Afterward, you will head off to Ballestas Island, where you will enjoy a stunning world filled with birds and sea lions. You will navigate around the islands at a distance, and check out some cave systems as long as the weather & waves permit it.
