Product description: Full day excursions to the Ballestas islands & Paraacs natural reserve

Ballestas Islands AND Paracas reserve : A boat tour to the Ballestas Islands will be the perfect excursion for those in search of marine life at the Pacific Ocean. Touring by boat around these small Islands you can easily spot hundreds of birds, including pelicans, boobies, Inca terns and cormorants, flying all over the place, some nesting on the slopes and others fishing nearby. The islands also provide shelter to the Humboldt penguins which are usually seen at the entrances of little caves. At the stony beaches you will see hundreds of sea lions, where stand out the big males. In addition, visitors will also see the enigmatic figure known as El Candelabro, a mysterious drawing located on the slope of a hill overlooking the sea. If you are lucky you will see friendly groups of dolphins swimming nearby. .

Itinerary : 07:45 h. You will be picked up from your hotel in Paracas by our local guide. Then you will be transferred to the Paracas harbor located nearby. At the Paracas dock you will board a speed-boat equipped with life vests and comfortable seats. At this point is advisable to wear a good jacket or wind breakers as it gets very windy once the boat gets in motion. We will leave then towards the Ballestas Islands. Along the way we will see the famous figure known as The Candelabro, an enigmatic design etched on the desert floor hundreds of years ago. The Candelabra is overlooking the Ocean, so here you will have the chance to take pictures, as well as to learn about the most popular theories about it. Afterwards we will continue to the  Ballestas Islands. The Ballestas Islands are inhabited by an amazing marine life, with over 200 types of migratory and resident birds, including Peruvian Pelicans, Belcher’s gulls, Humboldt penguins, guanay cormorants, red-legged cormorants, Inca terns, Peruvian boobies, turkey vultures, among others. In addition you will also see around the Islands hundreds of sea lions resting at the beaches, sleeping on the rocks or swimming nearby. The Islands also provide shelter to the shy Humboldt penguins which are usually seen at the entrances of small caves near the cliffs. After touring around the islands for about 1 hour

To the Paracas reserve: Paracas Reserve is a marine sanctuary located at the shore of the Pacific Ocean. Take a land tour and explore with our local guide wonderful beaches where you can swim or just walk around searching for marine creatures. Paracas Peninsula offers the perfect scenery for photographers, especially for birdwatchers as there are various spots where one can find types of birds such as Inca terns, flamingoes, eagles, pelicans, cormorants, and many others. By exploring the Paracas National Park by land you will not only enjoy a gorgeous landscape, but also will learn about the ancient Paracas Culture that lived there between the desert and the sea about 2000 years ago. Paracas is also one of the best places to enjoy great Peruvian food.

At 10:30 hrs. Our clients are collected from the Paracas harbor and afterwards we start our excursion to the Paracas Bay. During our excursion you will visit the centre of interpretation of Paracas, an interesting building that displays through photos, all the fauna, flora, and many other important facts about the Paracas Peninsula. Afterwards we will drive to the Paracas Peninsula, driving throughout a lifeless desert till we reach an area where once stood a great natural rock formation known as the Cathedral. Unfortunately this old formation did not withstand the 2007 earthquake that virtually left in ruins most of the cities near that zone. At the place our local guide will give you more details about it and then you will have free time to walk along the edge of the peninsula. At this zone you will have amazing views of the desert and the blue Pacific Ocean. Later on we will return to our private vehicle and continue driving along the shore of the ocean passing the beach of Yumaque. After some time we will arrive in the little fishing village of Lagunillas, where we will have plenty of time to walk around and also to enjoy great Peruvian food at any of the local restaurants overlooking the ocean.Finally we will return to the hotel or drop you off in the bus terminal as an optional for those who continue to Lima , Ica , Nazca , Arequipa or Cusco city..
