North America Baja California Cruise

Wild California Escape: Channel Islands National Park

This 5-day wilderness adventure in the remote and remarkable Channel Islands offers a unique and rejuvenating experience exploring, learning and relaxing throughout this special and close-to-home destination. Board your floating base camp, the 100-guest National Geographic Quest or sister ship 100-guest Venture, in Los Angeles and head to three of the five wildlife-rich islands which make up Channel Islands National Park, as well as Catalina Island. Actively explore unmarred landscapes and revel in pure nature.

Almost every national park in the U.S. is easy to get to, but the Channel Islands are separated from the mainland by miles of ocean. What this cruise offers is unique and effortless access to wild beauty and pristine nature for 5 days/4 nights, using a ship as a base camp.

This Channel Islands cruise offers opportunities to exult in the pristine beauty of the islands and roam free in wide-open spaces. Take leisurely trail walks with a naturalist looking out for the astonishing number of endemic flora & fauna of the islands. Explore fascinating sea caves by kayak or paddleboard. Stroll white-sand beaches or spend time exploring bustling tide pools. Take in panoramic views & spectacular landscapes. At the end of the day, enjoy a sunset cocktail party on deck and welcome the night with stargazing.
