Details of Day Tours


The tour to Ballestas Islands starts in the morning, after picking you up from your hotel (optional) located in Paracas and go towards El Chaco dock, the boarding point for the boat tour to the Ballestas Islands. After boarding, we are going to begin an amazing adventure to these beautiful islands.

 

The islands are located 30 minutes away from the coast of Paracas, in the province of Pisco, department of Ica. This place is a well know tourist attraction because of the unique ecosystem and incredible wildlife.

 

On the way you can admire the still inexplicable lines drawn in the sand forming a candelabrum. This mysterious geoglyph measures 590 ft., and is circa 2,500 years old. There is still no reason why it was drawn on the dune of the Paracas National Reserve. Some investigations relate it to the Nazca Lines.

 

We will continue the tour until reach the Islas Ballestas. It is a natural reserve of beautiful geological formations, rocky islands, and impressive fauna where you will find Humboldt penguins, sea lions and birds such as the pelican, among other species found in the archipelago.

The Island tour and the Paracas peninsula are really impressive. The trip to Paracas will leave you speechless.

Due to the number of birds that lives in the area, and with the migratory ones, these islands have the best natural fertilizer in the world: the guano. Among the guano birds you will see the booby, tendril and guanay, among others. Peru used the guano to improve the economy between 1845 and 1866.

At the end of the tour, we will return to the dock and, then, drop you off at your hotel (optional) located in Paracas.
