Wild California Escape: Channel Islands National Park
Book by May 31 to receive a $350 Air Credit per person on Select Departures!
Welcome to a new kind of getaway
Experience a 5-day Wildness + Wellness adventure in the remote and remarkable Channel Islands. Board the National Geographic Sea Lion, National Geographic Sea Bird, National Geographic Quest or National Geographic Venture, your floating base camp, in Los Angeles, and head for three of the five wildlife-rich islands which make up Channel Islands National Park, plus Catalina Island. Here, you’ll actively explore unmarred landscapes, revel in pure nature, and rejuvenate mind, body, and soul with Lindblad’s well-being programs.
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 they offer you is unique and effortless access—to wild beauty and pristine nature— for 5 days/4 nights, using their ship as a base camp.
And you can freely roam. Their ship is akin to a safari camp in Africa—comfortable, in the heart of things, yet mobile. Everything you want is aboard—paddleboards, kayaks, and expedition landing craft; a welcoming crew; smart naturalists; a wellness specialist; fitness instructors; and even a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor to help you up your photo game and capture all the unbelievable opportunities.
Escape the ordinary with revitalizing opportunities:
- Exult in the pristine beauty of the islands and roam free in wide-open spaces
- Take a leisurely trail walk with a naturalist, looking out for the astonishing number of endemic flora & fauna
- Explore fascinating sea caves by kayak or paddleboard
- Find your center with daily guided meditation sessions
- Challenge body and mind with fitness classes
- Stroll white-sand beaches or spend time exploring bustling tide pools
- Take in panoramic views & spectacular landscapes on mindfulness hikes + post-hike assisted stretching sessions
- Enjoy a sunset cocktail party on deck, then end the day with stargazing
Expect the unexpected
The itinerary is a plan, but flexibility and spontaneity are a big part of it. Lindblad’s ace spotters are always ‘on it,’ and if they sight a blue whale, they’ll let you know—so you won’t miss a thing nature has to offer. If conditions cancel one option, a landing for example, their nimble team will have another. They might surprise you with a BBQ on deck or a dance party under stars. Your getaway might be compact, but it’s a genuine expedition, so there’s always room for magic. And choice—enjoy your getaway your way.
