Amazing experience! Surfing perfect waves with thousands of sea lions
May 2021 • Couples
The entire trip was incredible. The captain and guide were very accommodating and friendly, and the boat was very nice. After a 30 minute ride we arrived at the wave and scored incredible waves all day. I’ll never forget the day, not just because of the epic waves, but because I shared them with thousands of sea lions! Highly recommend the trip and the guide!

Awesome trip!
Jan 2020
This was a seriously amazing trip! It took about an hour to get out to the island from Paracas, where we passed the Candelabro on the way there. The scenery was gorgeous as we had a great view of the Paracas National Reserve to/from the island. We scored some fun waves even though it was more so in the off season for south swell(in late January).

Victor was great with prompt communication via facebook messenger and was very kind to bring boards down for us from Lima (as there is not a rental spot in Paracas). He was also very understanding about us wanting to put down a partial deposit for the trip(however, for future bookers- it is perfectly safe to pay in full beforehand). A delicious lunch was provided as well.

Definitely bring plenty of sunscreen, hats/sunglasses/sun coverage, and long pants/sleeves as the sun is very strong and it can get windy/ a little cold on the boat ride there and back.

Overall, highly recommend this company and look forward to returning!

San Gallan a special surfing experience
Aug 2019 • Solo
What a special day spent around the waters of the island of Sangayan. We launched early in the morning 6:20am from the jetty of Playa Chaco with a group of 5 surfers. The ride was smooth and a little bumpy on the open ocean.. arriving in a protected bay anchoring right in front of the wave. The island is home of hundreds of sealions and they were a special part of the trip. The young sealions are so curious and are checking you out while surfing. The wave bends around the island almost 180° and therefore is super clean running depending on the swell 50 to 150 meters, with barrel potential on a bigger day. I highly recommend this, for anybody loving the sport of riding waves.

Day trip

Jorge Herrera, the best surf guide i know (i’ve been to peru 12 times) wasn’t able to arrange this one to san gallan, so he appointed me to san gallan xpeditions. Everything went smoothly and hassle free: waves were challenging, no easy joke, but rideable in last big swell. Just felt really lucky to join this crew of nice peruvians. Definitely will be back again any time soon with san gallan xpeditions”

The best surf trip ever!
Jul 2017 • Friends
I was suggested to go to San Gallan by peruvian friends here in OZ. I was lucky enough to get a spot with the guys from San Gallan Expeditions. It's around an hour boat ride from paracas to the spot. We arrived at the spot around 7.30am, the tide was high. We waited and watched for around 20 mins and it didn't really seem to be breaking. The tour guides however were saying it's going to be good. Then a set rolled up, 4 - 5 foot perfect walls. everyone suited up to get out there. As the day progressed the tide went out and it got hollower and hollower. The sun came out for the last half of the day, the surf was epic, with perfect walls and barrels, the crew was really chilled and the wildlife is all around you. There's not another human in sight, its a real experience. The guys from SG expeditions are awesome, just super chilled all about surfing and having fun. Can't wait to go back!!

The best!

This was my best surf trip so far. The place is a sanctuary, it is worth a visit. SGX with Vitucho is great. They use safe boats with all the safety implements; they are very friendly and knowledgeable. With SGX you will get waves all the time, they planned their trips very well. Oh and on the way back they stop in a great restaurant to taste the local cuisine. Over all is a 5 stars trip.
I look forward to travel with SGX again some time soon.
