Private Exclusive Boat Tour

Attractions & Activities In Paracas & Surrounding Islands


Just a short boat ride away from the port of Paracas are the Ballestas Islands, a string of islands frequently touted as the Peruvian Galapagos. On this protected nature reserve, colonies of sea lions nap on the beach, dashing black-and-white Humboldt penguins toddle around the rocks, and thousands-strong crowds of birds, such as pelicans, cormorants and boobies, swarm the skies.

If you’re on a private Peru holiday and want to squeeze in a trip to Ballestas from Lima, there is good news: with Kuoda, an excursion here can be completed in just one day. You’ll be picked up from your Lima hotel early in the morning for the three-hour drive to Paracas, where a representative will meet you and bring you to the pier. At about 8 a.m., you’ll step aboard the speedboat and set off toward the Ballestas Islands. As you skirt around the rocky indents and caves, observing the languid sea lions lounging on the shore and the masses of birds that crowd the skies, listen to informative commentary about the islands from your English-speaking guide. Boats cannot land on the islands, so for a close-up look, be sure to bring binoculars.
