What you'll do

Ours is a traditionally built boat located in the port of Chorrillos where they still employ traditional Peruvian net-fishing techniques, like generations past. It isn't likely you would go here on your own, but with an experienced guide, you are immersed in the local culture and learn ancient fishing traditions while you see and smell the day's fresh catch. We give you s/20 (the local currency) to spend while at the port. Interact with the vendors when you buy a water or a souvenir. Your guide will be there to translate. Next, you will spend 2 hours aboard the Excursion Me Peru. Enjoy cool breezes and diverse wildlife with a guided coastal tour. It is a wonderful experience to see the cliffs of Lima from the water! Feel free to fish, swim, or just sit back and relax. The boat is spacious and covered, so you can enjoy sun or shade. We'll also teach you how to make the traditional Peruvian drink, Pisco Sour. After a fun time on the water, we return to the port to savor a fresh seafood lunch in one of the local restaurants (this is the perfect opportunity to try some world-famous ceviche). Delicious! This excursion includes: Round trip transportation from your hotel (For those staying in the area) Guided tour of the port Local currency to spend at the port 2 hours aboard the boat Pisco Sour lesson Fishing equipment and life jacket Lunch

Where you'll be

The port of Chorrillos doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside you will find a variety of fresh fish and seafood. Dozens of skiffs float in the harbor. Fishermen, like generations before, bring in their catches or mend their nets. Vendors display their wares and restaurants entice you with plates piled high. It is a located on the southern end of the stretch of beaches which span Miraflores, Barranco, and Chorrillos.
