After pickup from your Paracas hotel, you’ll travel to the port and board a boat destined for the Ballestas Island — a rugged archipelago replete with wildlife. On your vessel, enjoy refreshments such as coffee and tea, cheese and crackers, and vegetables and dips, as you sail past natural landmarks.
Observe penguins, gulls and pelicans in their rocky natural environment, and delight in the raucous cries and ungainly frolics of sea lions as they bask in the Peruvian sunshine.
See, too, an ancient phenomena known as The Chandelier — a pre-Inca geolyph etched in the sand of a sloping hill. Ruminate on the origin of this etching alongside your guide, and then stop at the port to sample Peruvian culinary classics.
Opt to sample fresh seafood, or pleasure your palate with ceviche — raw fish marinated in limejuice, chilli and coriander.
