Know More about this tour

You'll be picked up from your hotel at 10am and head to the district of Callao. At 11:30am, you'll set sail to the islands of Callao. Admire the anchorage of yachts, warships and merchant ships in the bay of Callao as you go. During the trip, you'll go through the Camotalopen where sea islands can be seen.

You'll pass by the San Lorenzo and Fronton islands, see fishing boats at work, various colonies of seabirds and the second largest colony of Humboldt penguins, as well as the Cavinzas Island. At 12pm, you'll arrive at the farthest point, Palomino Island, home to a large colony of seals (sea lions). Here, you can swim freely between them which, thanks to the absence of predators, is unforgettable.

    We really enjoyed our tour! Would 100% recommend! Definitely bring a fitted swimsuit to wear under your wetsuit, and make sure to bring a towel for drying off! It’s super cold, and the water was very rough, causing a few to be seasick. However, it’s still completely worth it. Our guide Ismael was amazing; he even got in the water with us! Javier, the boat captain, was a great driver. Pick up and drop off at our hotel was included, as well as tea/coffee at the beginning and snacks/water bottle at the end.

    Incredible once in a lifetime experience... Host picked us up friendly helpful took us on 2 boat rides out to an area I can only describe as a movie set stunning landscapes... seeing penguins, sea lions swimming in front of us..Incredible.. When we finally got to our site where we would be swimming ...a little bit of apprehension it was very cold the water was freezing ..shock to the system when you 1st get in, like needles and then your body eventually goes numb and it's the most amazing wonderful experience I've ever had... Feeling like one with nature was incredible.... Everything was very well done very pleasant and helpful host/ tour guide.. Jumped in the water with us took photos explain things made it very enjoyable.. Downside is I wish I would have brought more warm clothes for after the swim going back wet back wet was a little uncomfortable but that was all on me .. Lunch was provided boat trip was very nice would highly recommended.. Great value for your money on this once in a lifetime experience

    This Day trip from Lima is a must! Our tour guide was Rodrigo, who was great! He spoke really good English and spanish. He even jumped in the water with us! This trip also has a driver that picked us up at our hotel, Walter, who gave us tips on places to see in Lima. He was waiting for us after the tour to bring us back to the hotel! Dont miss out on this trip from Lima, it’s so worth it!

    The experience is what it’s promised to be you see lots of seals, birds, penguins. Tour includes pick up but not drop off? We somehow missed that so be aware you need to find your own transportation back. Wet suits came to mid thigh not all the way to ankles and were def pretty worn. Still a fun day just make sure you realize these things.

    Great one day trip to sea wild life in there habit. It's the Pacific Ocean, so, get ready for a bumpy ride. Take the necessary measures. Even if you think you don't get sea sick, TAKE motion sickness pills, over take them 😂 or you may not enjoy the ride. Everyone was sick the whole time. (Except us that over took candies and pills for it)

    This excursion was absolutely amazing. Not only were the sites breathtaking, but the tour guides were incredibly responsive to issues when a fellow tourist had seasickness and made sure to adjust schedules accordingly. Very happy I booked this tour.

    This was so fun! I’ve never been able to swim with sea lions before, and the experience was unforgettable. Our tour guide, Rodrigo, was great and made the boat ride fun and educational.

    Swimming with the Sea Lions was priceless. We were able to see the Humboldt penguins, yeah! Guide (Ismael) very involved in the experience and informative. Picture of the boat shown in description of the tour is not close to the real boat. It is not a yacht, but boat was good though.

    This was a blast! The boat is not a yacht as pictured but it is comfortable and gets you where you need to be. Ismail, the guide we had, was fun and informative. The islands are very pretty and the sea lions, seals and birds have to be seen to be believed. Highly recommend. It was a great experience swimming with the sea lions and seals.

    We had a wonderful time visiting the sea lions and cruising around the islands. I would recommend taking a towel with you. Also, the photo of the yacht is misleading.
