East Anacapa & Santa Cruz Islands, California

Oct 03, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Bird


On our first day exploring California’s Channel Islands National Park on National Geographic Sea Bird we were treated to superb weather and calm seas. Hikes and Zodiac cruises allowed us to explore East Anacapa Island in the morning and after lunch it was all about time on the ocean in Smugglers Cove at Santa Cruz Island where we enjoyed kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.

About the Author

Andrew Peacock

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Andrew was born in Adelaide, South Australia and (mis)spent his youth surfing and kayaking in the ocean, as is the case for many Aussies! After graduating from medical school there, Andrew spent a year working as a surgical resident in Santa Barbara, California where he was introduced to rock climbing. Taking up this new activity with a passion, he began to explore the mountainous regions of the world and volunteered his medical skills in Nepal and India where he has since led numerous treks. After documenting his experiences there on slide film, Andrew began contributing photos to what was then the Lonely Planet image library, and thus began a ‘sideline career’ using the creative side of his brain.
