Private Tour Ballestas Islands
- Duration: 2 hours
- Activity level: low
- Group size: small
The Tour to the Ballestas Islands begins at the artisanal and tourist pier of El Chaco. We board our slider and observe in principle the type of boats that are used in the two main activities in the district of Paracas: tourism and fishing.
We sail along the bay of Paracas and see the largest peninsula we have in Peru. We then stop at a northern point of the Paracas peninsula to look at, photograph and film the Candelabro where the tour guide in summary will explain about the measurements, materials of the area and its possible origin. The navigation continues and after approximately 15 minutes from the Candelabro you reach the Ballestas Islands where a great biodiversity is found thanks to the Humboldt current and the phenomenon of outcropping in addition to other factors such as the sun and winds. Birdwatchers will find a lot of these such as seagulls, seagulls, pikemen, cormorants, pelicans, vultures and Humboldt penguins. You will also see crustaceans, echinoderms, molluscs, seaweed and others.
Definitely the highlight of the Tour to the Ballestas Islands are the sea lions or sea lions who steal everyone's attention for the curious ness of their behavior (sleep, "pose for the cameras", or simply socialize and live without problems because they occupy the top of the food chain in the area without natural predators).
The return becomes relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze is a natural anti-stress.
