We are still not sure if it is the imperfectly beautiful abstract-shaped caves, or the way the southern sunlight reflects on the deep emerald waters, or perhaps the tranquility that sleeping sea lions transmit… but there is something profoundly magical about Islas Ballestas.
You will find a diverse and rich fauna, such as sea lions, Humboldt penguins, seals, turtles and dozens of different guano birds, such as the albatross and pelican. Even more, you will see the complex and unusual rock arches and tunnels, which are formed by the combination of violent tides and winds that can reach a speed of 32 km/h. Moreover, most of our rides offer a sightseeing experience of the Candelabro de Paracas, an incredible geoglyph whose meaning remains a mystery.
Venturia offers you the best boat rides to experience everything these islands have to offer, in the most adventurous and luxurious fashion that characterizes us. We’ll show you the various options we offer for you to visit the Ballestas Islands.
Our Ballestas Islands Tour is a great option for a fast and complete tour of this incredible place. It lasts approximately 2 hours, and we start by picking you up from the dock of Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort at 8:20 A.M. or 10:20 A.M (tours at both times are offered every day). Our first stop will be at the Candelabro de Paracas. Then we will head towards the great Islas Ballestas, where, in 45 minutes, we’ll show them to you from every possible angle.
Another option for you to visit these exotic islands is by our Premium Motorboat Expeditions. It can last from 3-4 for hours, depending on the Islands you want to visit. As with other tours, we start by picking you up from the main dock of the hotel, and we then take you to a complete ride around the Paracas bay, including a tour of the Ballestas Islands.
Our “Rayador” will allow us to take to places other vessels can’t reach, such as little intricate hidden bays, as well as to enjoy the sea breeze in its sundeck. It is also especially comfortable, as it counts with an indoor restroom. This tour also allows you to visit other nearby islands, such as Isla Blanca.
