Cruises from Islas Ballestas

The Islas Ballestas are a group of small islands in the Pacific Ocean, 8 km off shore from Peru. The islands are nicknamed “The Poor Man´s Galapagos”. The nearest mainland port is Paracas, 18 km distant. The islands are barren rocky formations and are an important sanctuary for the guanay guano bird, the blue-footed booby and the tendril. Other notable species include Humboldt penguins, fur seals and sea lions. Visitors usually take the two-hour boat trip from the resort town of Paracas.
