THE island to visit when in Lima

Spectacular! This is definitely the top activity to do in Lima. We did both Palomino islands and Ballestas islands and this adventure was by far a much better experience.

The trip was great. We saw wonderful things on a short but well-spent time. Julio, our guide, was absolutely lovely, and helped me so much with my sea-illness (which by the way was ok, I was the only one who got it on the really good-quality boat)

Great experience, bad tour company
Justin

Awesome experience, but I'd recommend it with a different company. We started 40 minutes late and ended 40 minutes late. They clearly didn't have enough wetsuits because for some reason they didn't expect everyone to get in, so we ended up with ones that were way too big for the frigid waters. It's straight up dangerous to be passing out loose shorties in that frigid water.

This was the most memorable experience and our host Julio was a wonderful guide to make sure we all were taken care of and filmed us in the water to share with us. I would do this again in a heartbeat. A dream come true finally happened

Unique experience

Well-organized and informative, as well as fun and adventurous! We had a great time interacting with the sea lions in their natural habitat. Our guides did a great job of making sure we kept a safe distance, but also helped to get close if we wanted one to touch our feet. The wetsuits were a must in February, the water was not so bad with it on but still pretty cold and I can’t imagine it would be enjoyable without one.

This is my second time swimming with the sea lions because I wanted to capture the experience with a waterproof camera. The crew was fantastic. The captain maneuvered the boat so everyone had a chance to get a good view of the wildlife. The crew was efficient and friendly.

The tour was very nice! Your guide gives you a short coverage of the most important Information about the island and animals. Youll get water and on your way back some snacks. They provide life vests and wetsuits for everyone. It was amazing because the guide tried to get us closer to the sea lions and we had anlot of fun. Really recommend the tour!
