This tour was excellent. There were four of us, and we were almost certainly the only English-speaking people in the boat. Everyone else was local. The guide was bilingual and made a special effort to come over to us and explain things. The boats are all pretty much alike. Don't pay big bucks for special "excursions." Two of us purchased our tickets in advance, but two in our group bought tickets on the spot (slightly higher price, but not much.) The entry fee to the national park (paid separately from the tour price) was about $6 USD per person. The tour lasts right around two hours and that's plenty of time. All the boats are out there together. Paying more does not get you a better boat or a better experience or evern more time. There was one boat right next to us that was filled with people from our cruise ship who bought the ship's excursion (at a whopping $165 pp). They boarded at the same time we did and came back to the pier at the same time we did. This was one of the best tours we've ever taken considering the price. Massive numbers of sea birds, dozens of sea lions, just excellent. We were very lucky in that the water was calm, so the ride was smooth and pleasant.

You’ll need to pay 60 soles tax to the Peru government on top of the Viator price to enter. Nice tour, but is a very expensive 2 hour outing for Peru
