DETAILED DESCRIPTION

We will meet at Marina Yacht Club Callao where we'll depart to the islands. During the first part of the tour you will see yachts, war ships and merchant ships. Then we will pass by "El Camotal" and Isla San Lorenzo, where you will see fishermen’s boats at sea, and also dung birds and Humboldt penguins.

After 1 hour and 30 minutes, we will arrive at the Palomino Islands, where there is a large colony of sea lions. Here you will see some of them swimming, jumping and diving below the boat. Wearing a wetsuit, you can jump into the water with life vests and swim with them. Sometimes the younger ones come up and touch us out of curiosity, but the older ones usually keep a 5-metre distance from us. They live in comfort because there are no predators. Being in the water in such close proximity to the colony is an amazing experience for anyone who likes nature and wildlife.

At 12:30 pm we’ll start the return trip to the dock; the boat will pass by amazing cliffs and islets where you will see many bird colonies. Then, we will have a snack.

At 1:00 pm we will arrive at the dock.

  3. How can I get to Marina Yatch Club Callao from my hotel?

    Mar Adentro Peru has a partnership with a taxi company called Sion Service Travel. They can pick you up from your hotel/hostel (in Miraflores or San Isidro) and drop you off after the tour for an extra 90 soles. To book this extra service, you will need to call them and ask to speak directly with Fernando Arce on +51 993 078 598 (for English and German speaking people), or with Rosaura Ibarra on +51 993 285 856 (for Spanish speaking people). You will need to mention that you are a passenger of Mar Adentro Peru. If you do not want to use the partnership, or your hotel/hostel is not in Miraflores or San Isidro, you can take a taxi. The cost is around 30 to 40 soles, and it takes 45 minutes (without traffic) or 1 hour (with traffic). Ask your hotel/hostel reception to organize a taxi for you, as taxis in Lima can be very informal. For your return trip to your hotel/hostel, ask the tour operator to organize a taxi for you.
