Ballesta Islands, are 3 hours from Lima by Car. It is a good tour to combine with the dunes of Huacachina. Since it is on the way. That's what we did. We rented a car in Lima, we left around 6am and we drove to...More
We had a lovely trip to the islands. It was well organised and everyone on the boat had a good lifejacket. On our boat the guide spoke in Spanish and English. She was informative about the wildlife that we saw. And we certainly saw a...More
It's a nice 2 hours boat trip to the islands near the coast where you can watch Humboldt Penguins, gannets, gulls, pelicans and sea lions in rough nature. This and the national park is the highlight of the region and that's why tours are stopping...More
It was an open boat for about 30 people, and did manoeuvre very close to the islands. The enthusiasm of the guide really shone through as she pointed out to us all the creatures on view. An edge seat towards the rear may afford the...More
The best thing about this trip is obviously the wildlife. The thousands of birds on these islands are really quite a sight to see. The sea lions lounging on the rocks and the birds diving for fish were entertaining.

We booked in advance. The boat has a limited number of seats - maybe 20 - there were actually two boats that left at the same time. But I would highly recommend booking before hand - I think through your hotel. We stayed... More
We booked in advance. The boat has a limited number of seats - maybe 20 - there were actually two boats that left at the same time. But I would highly recommend booking before hand - I think through your hotel. We stayed at the Hotel Paracas and the boat takes off right from their dock. Definitely one of the best boat trips ever!

Our trip was in June, one of the coolest months of the year. The flamingos were on the beach in front of the hotel all day long. The boat trip was mid morning for about 3-4 hours and we saw wildlife the entire time. We spotted several different groups of penguins on the islands, many sea lions, cormorants, pelicans, seagulls and boobies. In fact, there are so many seabirds there it is incredible. Plus our trip was a little longer and we were able to cruise by the candelabra which was an amazing sight. Our only regret is that we only stayed two nights. We could have used another full day to relax on the beach and enjoy the resort.
