Los Islotes and La Paz, Baja California Sur

Jan 13, 2020 - National Geographic Venture


Sailing south overnight on National Geographic Venture, on the calm waters of the Sea of Cortez, we arrived at a California sea lion haul out site on the rocky outcrops of Los Islotes for an early morning snorkel excursion. We spent the afternoon and evening at the delightful seaport of La Paz with time to explore the lively streets before enjoying a celebration of Mexican cultural performances with dinner served on the Malecon at sunset.

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.
