Discover a hidden wild side of a well-known region

Embark on an unprecedented five-day expedition into wildness and wellness in the remote and remarkable Channel Islands. Step aboard in Los Angeles and sail to three of the five wildlife-rich islands that make up Channel Islands National Park, plus Catalina Island. Dayboats can take you to a single island to hike or camp, but a true in-depth exploration of the Channel Islands on our nimble ships (with comfy staterooms) is a unique offering and the only way to take in the full natural splendor of this extraordinary national park. It is akin to a safari camp in Africa—comfortable, in the heart of things, yet mobile. Everything you want is aboard—paddleboards, kayaks, and Zodiacs; a welcoming crew; smart naturalists; a wellness specialist; and a certified photo instructor. You’ll actively explore unmarred landscapes, revel in pure nature, and rejuvenate mind, body, and soul with our well-being programs.

  • Explore the islands by walking miles of trails, paddling crystal-clear waters by kayak or stand-up paddleboard, exploring by Zodiac, or photographing breathtaking landscapes and bird colonies

  • Hike in a Torrey Pine grove, one of only two on Earth, and enjoy a picnic lunch with sweeping views of the natural harbor

  • See iconic animals such as the American bison, bald eagles, and the Channel Island fox

  • Visit the famous community of Avalon, a haven for movie stars in Hollywood’s golden era

Day By Day

Our itinerary is a plan, but flexibility and spontaneity are a big part of it. Our 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. They might surprise you with a BBQ on deck or a dance party under the 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.
