Sand Dunes of Isla Magdalena

Jan 21, 2020 - National Geographic Venture


This morning Baja greeted us with yet another glorious sunrise as National Geographic Venture lay at anchor close to the dunes of Isla Magdalena. After breakfast guests went ashore by Zodiac to explore the dunes and walk the short distance across the isthmus to Sand Dollar Beach. In the afternoon we enjoyed a fascinating presentation by Greg Marshall who established the remote imaging lab many years ago at National Geographic headquarters in Washington DC.

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.
