From sunrise to sunset, all onboard National Geographic Venture experienced an incredible introduction to the natural history and unique biodiversity of California’s Channel Islands! From the rugged, narrow basalt ridgeline of Anacapa to the vast rolling hills of Santa Cruz, we sailed west to explore more of this fantastic landscape. Although within sight of the bustling metropolitan Los Angeles coastline, it seems a world away and is home to plants, animals and geological features found nowhere else on the planet.
