Any visit to Paracas is a crowd-pleaser for sea and sand lovers. But, there is more to the beach-side resort town than the hidden coves of the Paracas National Reserve and tours of the Galapagos-esque Ballesta Islands. For something entirely unique, embark our newest tour: an incomparable experience to a local scallop farm where you can fish for your own lunch. There is no doubt about it, this will be the culinary highlight of your Paracas adventure.

A Farm to Table Culinary Experience
For a farm to table experience like nothing you’ve done before, hop onto a premium motorboat and cruise to the ultimate, undisclosed location at a nearby locally-owned scallop farm. Here, you’ll get the rare chance to literally dive into the local mariculture, scooping up your own lunch from the sea.
