Ballestas Island boat tour from Paracas

Ballestas Islands, a group of rocky islands located 12 miles offshore of Paracas fishing village and very close to the National Reserve of Paracas.
The reserve was created to protect the rich biodiversity and coastal marine ecosystems living in the cold waters brought by Humboldt Current and stand out among the region’s major wildlife-spotting destinations because of the rich biodiversity.
 Paracas National Reserve is located in the Ica region, about 250 km south of Lima, providing a privileged location to get a close look at tons of seabirds, guano birds, Humboldt penguins, and sea lions.
Their intriguing attractions include the Candelabra geoglyph, carved into a sandy hill related to Nazca Lines but it seems was built by the Paracas civilization.
