Palomino Islands Tour

Lima

This tour leaves from Callao. You’ll board a yacht here and settle in for a ride to the islands. The yacht has two floors and is very comfortable. There are places to sit throughout the whole thing, including in the bow and in the rear. There is also a bathroom, living room, and kitchen on the first floor.

The ride out to Islas Palomino takes about 1.5 hours. On the way you’ll pass several other islands, including Islas San Lorenzo, Islas El Fronton, and Islas Cavinzas (which is usually covered with seabirds). Guides will explain the significance of the islands and offer you snacks and drinks.

You’ll eventually arrive at Islas Palomino and see sea lions covering the island and swimming in the water. In fact, around 8,000 sea lions live here. Your guides will teach you how to get into the water and swim with the sea lions. Don’t worry – these are very friendly animals! You’ll be able to watch them dart, jump, and swim all around you. It’s very exciting and exhilarating.

After swimming with the sea lions for about 40 minutes, you’ll get back on the boat and return to Callao. In total, this tour takes about 4 hours.
