Today we will take a 2 hours boat tour around Ballestas Island , they are home to a great variety of wildlife. There are huge colonies of sea lions and unusual marine birds, such as – Humboldt’s Penguin, cormorants, Peruvian booby and Peruvian pelican. The islands surrounding seas are rich in creel, and associated upper food chain fish. They provide a safe breeding ground for sea lions, pelicans and a large variety of bird life.
The quantity of birds was particularly obvious from the huge amount of guano, covering the red rock of the islands with baked white clay – which, surprisingly enough, used to be Peru’s main industry, used extensively by Europeans for fertilizer. there are still a few guano factories on the islands, which guys live on for two months at a time like oil riggers.
The wildlife is spectacular. On each island sea lions and rare birds, including playful Humboldt penguins, clumsy-looking Peruvian boobies, dignified cormorants and graceful pelicans, swarmed in uncountable numbers, jostling for space.
The tours length may vary. It either can be a full day trip or a half day short trip. The tiny time limit creates a boundary for you and you can’t enjoy the trip as well, that you can have at full day tour. In half day trip, you need to return back to your ship after few hours. But, you will get a long time in a full shore excursion. Isn’t it amazing?
Well, these are the different types of shore excursion. You will definitely find different options. But, pick the best one to enhance your enjoyment.
