This morning we explore one of this region’s most beautiful natural attractions, the Ballestas Islands. Often referred to as “Peru’s Galapagos”, the volcanic islands are home to an array of wildlife and dramatic scenery.
From the ship, we drive by motor coach to El Chaco where we board the tour boats. As we cruise around the islands, keep your eyes peeled for the birds and sea mammals that live here. After arriving at the islands our pace slows and we take advantage of the many fantastic photo opportunities that emerge. See seals, sea lions and penguins circle the boat in great numbers, while boobies, frigate birds and pelicans fly above.
This excursion is an exciting wildlife interlude where close encounters with animals and birds are an everyday occurrence.
Afterwards we return to the ship.
