The tour starts with pickup from your hotel within Paracas town to the Marina Turistica where you will board our speedboat to begin our adventure to the stunning Ballestas Islands (group service).
On the way you’ll stop at the Paracas Peninsula to see the enigmatic figure of the Candelabro, stunning design drawn on the side of a hill in the Peninsula. Nobody knows for sure who did it or why. There are many hypotheses regarding its origin, some believe it is related to the Nazca Lines but still found no proof or evidence that can define its creation. Afterward you will head off to Ballestas Island where you will enjoy a stunning worlds filled with birds and sea lions. You will navigate around the islands at a distance allowed and probably some caves but this will be depending on the condition of the sea. At the end of the tour you will be returned to the port and then transfered back to your hotel.

This worked out well because they pick you up, organize your tickets and drive you back, but honestly you could just book the boat on your own. And overall, I learned that you can actually see the penguins and sea lions right off the coast of Lima and actually swim in the water and it's not as crowded - I would have preferred that to this.
