One of the best tours in 30 years of cruising
DAVID_O
, Jan 2020
Great tour one of the best and one of the cheapest we have ever taken. Cold and windy on the speedboat out to the island - wear a jacket and wear shoes with good traction as getting in and out of the boat is touchy. A million birds and dozens and dozens of sea lions everywhere on the 3 little, rocky islands. The islands themselves are fascinating - multiple rock arches and tunnels. Very jagged. Sea lions draped all over the rocks - how do they get up so high? We only saw about 6 Humbolt penguins but so many other birds- and some with their babies- that the few penguins did not disappoint. The guide did a good job of informing us about the different birds and the history of the islands. The place stinks from all the guano - be prepared. Cost about 1/3rd what the same tour from the cruise costs. Do not miss this one!

The trip to the island was fantastic. Our guide was informative and easily understood. The only reason it was not given an excellent was because the return to the ship was disjointed. Instead of being delivered directly to the ship, we had a cab to a shuttle bus.

Very interesting, and unusual wildlife experience well organised and less than half the price for exactly the same trip on the cruise ship.

They picked us up in a van right outside the ship and took us directly to the port where we boarded a small boat that held about 20 people. It was a smooth ride as we passed the Candelabro and then headed out to the Ballestas Island. The captain could get the boat near the islands so we could see the many sea lions, penguins and caves. We also saw flocks of thousands of cormorants as they dove for anchovies.The guide on the boat shared a lot of information about the islands. I would definitely do this boat trip again.

We absolutely loved this tour! We had no idea that we would see so many birds and sea life. We were on a cruise and we were picked up where we disembarked from the ship. Everyone loved this excursion. It turned out that it was one of the highlights of our trip. It's definitely a "must do".
