Uma experiência memorável. Viagem muito confortável, segura, com um guia a bordo muito pacífico, extremamente conhecedor da natureza e amável.
Visita ao Candelabro na península de Paracas e de seguida visita às 3 ilhas Ballestas, com observação de leões marinhos, meio milhão de aves, pinguins e caranguejos. Uma visita estonteante!

educational and beautiful. lots of birds, pelican, boobies, terns and more plus seals. just a short ride from the pier plus you have an amazing view of the Candleabra carved into the cliffside. We had the added blessing of perfect weather and animals that were OK with the boat full of people coming fairly close. Absolutely wonderful!
