Approximately 3½ hours
Transfer by private coach to the pier, where you'll board a basic, uncovered boat for transportation to the Palomino Islands.
En route, and at the islands themselves, you will observe rocky islands, dung birds, fishermen at work on their boats, and a Humboldt penguin colony. A huge group of sea lions will likely meet your boat. They live in complete safety because there are no predators here, and they will play, swim, jump and dive around you.
Heading back to the pier, your boat travels past shoals and rocks that are crowded with bird colonies, rounding out your marine nature experience.
Tour operates weather permitting. Exact itinerary depends upon sea and weather conditions. Bring your own binoculars. Restrooms are only available on the dock before boarding the boat. The boat is not covered. Participants must be in good physical condition. Bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
