We will be traveling through waters shared by a rich diversity of marine and bird life – and hopefully spotting a few whales! Once at the Farallones, you will be amazed at how many different species of birds flock to the islands.

Our local and knowledgeable captain, crew and naturalist will ensure you have a fantastic and unique experience. Take this opportunity to learn about the Gulf of the Farallones and catch sight of wildlife while enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery. During migrations, the waters just off Point Reyes are among the best locations to observe Gray Whales on their long seasonal journeys.

We can’t predict the weather, or the behavior of our marine friends, but we can confidently predict that a day on the California Coast with us will be an adventure you’ll remember for a lifetime.
