The Palomino Islands are very similar to the well known Ballestas Islands in Paracas, inhabited by thousands of Sea Lions and Guano Birds, but are located just 30 minutes from Lima. We offer a half day yacht tour that would take you to these ecological paradise.

Itinerary:

We meet at the Marina Yacht Club, to get on board the "Cosa Nostra II", a 38 feet motor yacht, modern, secure and very comfortable. We begin the trip with a panoramic view of Callao´s Bay, Peruvian´s main Port, and "La Punta" beach. We will see Navy warships, commercial ships, as well as private yachts and sailboats.

During low tides, we will see "El Camotal", a sandbank that was once part of the port until the 1746 earthquake, when part of Callao slipped beneath the sea. Then we will continue our way to "San Lorenzo” Island, 4Km from Callao´s Bay, the biggest (8Km) and highest (370mt) Island in Peru. Nowadays, it is a desert island where we can find only a Naval Base and the Presidential Beach House. It has a significant historical and archaeological value.

Near San Lorenzo is "El Fronton" Island also called "Death Island", where there are still the remains of the prison that was there until 1986, when it was definitively closed after a big riot. After approximately one hour and 30 minutes sailing we will arrive to "Palomino Islands", where we will find thousands of Sea Lions and will enjoy a marvelous show watching them swimming and playing between the rocks and caverns of the island. These islands are also inhabited by Sea Birds as Pelicans, Guanay Cormorant, Red Legged Cormorant, Inca tern, Peruvian booby, and occasionally Humboldt Penguin.

Here you will have the chance to swim around the sea lions and/ or take the best pictures from our yacht during an approximately 30 to 60 minute stop. An extraordinary experience that you can´t miss. Returning to the north of San Lorenzo, we will find still waters where we will serve some snacks and beverages for you to enjoy the way back to the dock, where we would arrive around 1pm.
