Great tour. Thousands of sea lions! Better than Ballestas Islands and closer to Lima. Two and a half hour tour, you get to swim with sea lions. Also lots of sea birds and pengins. Really amazing!!

A great way to start out trip to Peru. We took the two-hour boat ride from Lima out to Islas Palomino. 6000 Sea Lions call this island home. It smells like sea lions, but once you get over the smell you jump into the ocean...More
