Things to consider:

Sunburn and sea sickness are the most common problems our clients encounter. Please read and follow the advice below in order to fully enjoy your trip:


During summer months from December to March skies are mostly permanently blue and without clouds. Therefore sun-exposure at sea is very high. We recommend for the entire year (even in winter) bringing a hat and sunglasses, as well as using sun-block with the highest level of sun protection possible (45 or higher).

During the winter months from June to August temperatures are still around 16 degrees Celsius. The Peruvian coast will often be covered in fog in the morning that later on clears up and gives way to a grey and sometimes blue sky at around noon time. All marine travel programs are equally possible under these weather conditions but we recommend bringing warm and waterproof clothing. Sea sickness

.How to avoid sea sickness and involuntary fish feeding

• Don’t make the mistake to NOT eat before your boat ride. An empty stomach is as bad as one being too full. Be adequately hydrated, nourished and rested. However, if you start to feel apprehensive about the boat ride, don’t eat a large meal before departure. Munch on crackers and sip water or a sport drink.
