What you can expect

Witness the fascinating wildlife and the gorgeous rocky cliffs of the Palomino Islands off the coast of mainland Peru. On your way out to this paradise in the Pacific, pass by other stunning islands, and then once you arrive, jump in the refreshing waters to swim alongside sea lions.

Escape the crowded Lima cosmopolitan area to take part in an exciting excursion that offers great views of nature and an adventurous jaunt with local wildlife. After being picked up from your hotel in the morning, head to the Callao Yacht Club. From here, set sail to the Palomino Islands, a small group of islands that are located 6 miles (10 km) off the coast from the port of Callao.

On your way out to sea, pass by an anchorage of yachts, warships, and merchant vessels. Sail past San Lorenzo Island, Peru's largest island that played an important role in the Battle of Callao. After a short trip, arrive at the Palomino Islands which boasts a special ecosystem where sea lions and local migratory birds coexist in harmony. The lack of predators makes it possible for you to dive into the water and swim with the sea lions and penguins at a comfortable distance.

Return back to the coast by passing through islets inhabited by guano birds and the second largest colony of Humboldt penguins in Peru, while enjoying a delicious snack.
