Itinerary

Day 1 : 4-hour boat tour of the Palomino Islands, viewing the marine wildlife en route.

Visiting: Lima

This is a 1/2 day boat tour (morning), exploring the coast of el Callao and visiting the Island of Palomino. You will interact with the wildlife, such as sea lions, sea birds and penguins, that live in this area. Pick up at your hotel and begin the boat tour, watching for the unique, touching sites that will leave you pondering the moving beauty of nature.

Our tour will pass by or visit these wonderful islands:

El Camotal: Part of the old port of el Callao, this island is covered by the ocean as a result of the 1746 earthquake. On low-tide days, you may observe some remains.

San Lorenzo Island: Once the place of religious centers in pre-Columbian times, it became a bone yard for seamen, pirates and corsairs during the Colony. Later, it was used for research by many, including Charles Darwin. Now, as a military area, you will have a panoramic view of the island as we sail past.

El Fronton Island: This sticks out of the seas as a huge rock! You will see the remains of the eponymous old Penitentiary...and listen to some of its countless stories and anecdotes!

Cavinzas Islands: This group of islands have many natural caves and caverns. It is the last guano harvesting site. Now, the isles are a natural paradise for seabirds such as pelicans, Peruvian boobies, iguanas, red-leg cormorants, and a variety of gulls. We may even see Humboldt penguins.

Palomino Islands: This is an important group of islands for habitat and refuge for sea lions. These huge, frolicsome, friendly animals thrive in these rocky islands, with plenty of trilling natural caves and caverns. If you are prepared, you may take a swim and a picture with sea lions in the background!

The exciting day on the water and viewing wildlife ends with your return to your hotel. 4 hour tour, plus transportation time to/from boat dock.
