  • Lima: Swim with Wild Sea Lions at Palomino Islands

    1. Lima: Swim with Wild Sea Lions at Palomino Islands

    Meet your friendly crew then sail to the islands of Callao, travelling through the "El Camotal" underwater, open sea and passing by San Lorenzo Island.  At 11:30 AM, reach the farthest point, Palomino Island, which houses a large colony of sea lions. Here, you can freely swim alongside these great animals in neoprene suits. Then, at 12:35 PM, you will return to the meeting place in Calloa at Calle La Mar 229. Your return will begin through impressively shaped cliffs and islets. You will have the chance to enjoy a snack on board before arriving at the pier in Callao at 1:00 PM.

    The crew were funny, engaging, genuinely happy to take us out to swim with the sea lions. The experience was amazing. I have swum, surfed, dived in the ocean for 50 years but never have I been happier in the water than I was swimming with the sea lions. Their noise, inquisitive and fun nature was incredible. I was fortunate enough to be nibbled on the foot by one! Words can’t describe. Have no second thoughts, do it, you won’t regret it.

    It is a long day, but well worthwhile as a lot is packed in. I was really lucky as I was the only one on the tour that day so had Choji, my guide, to myself. His English was excellent and he was a really interesting guide. He covered not only details about the sights on the way but also happily discussing pretty much anything about Peru that I wanted to know. Great to get out of Lima and see something of Peru. Trip to the Ballestas Islands was memorable - getting up close to the sea lions and birds. Desert and oasis impressive too. Sand buggying very much like a roller coaster. Lunch and tasting at the winery were good too. Our guide there was really informative and funny. Also very generous tasting session of eight different piscos. A well put together tour.

    Lucas was our guide, and was very knowledgeable about many aspects of Lima and its history. The car ride was very long, but we brought movies/books to entertain ourselves. We had a rest stop about an hour of the way in where we bought coffee and ate from the included “box breakfast.” We then continued on to Huacachina to ride the sand buggies and sandboard. After that, we flew over the Nazca lines in a Cessna Grand Caravan which was great except for the 60deg banked turns so everyone can see the lines. Lunch was after that at appx 2pm, and we skipped the wine tasting cause our stomachs were still struggling from the flight. The ride back took about 5 hrs as there was lots of traffic going into Lima. Overall a great experience.

What people are saying about Lima

This tour was wonderful! We did not have a lot of time in Lima but we wanted to get in as much as we could. Luca, the tour guide, was wonderful. Kind, sincere, caring, extremely knowledgeable, and willing to entertain all our questions, take pictures for us, asked us our opinion, and made us feel welcome to his beautiful country and city. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has some time but not a lot. The driver was nice as well and they provided us with a clean van, water, and snacks.
