Gulf of the Farallones Whale Watching Excursions

A 5-hour whale watching excursion Monday-Friday starting Oct. 1

  • Adults $79
Student / Senior / Military

Get outside the Gate! Join us for a day of adventure through San Francisco Bay and along the Northern California Coastline. Your cruise will take you through calmer coastal waters near the majestic hills and cliffs of Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Point Reyes National Seashore. The northern coast of Golden Gate is spectacularly beautiful and, thanks to fortunate accidents of history and the decades-long efforts of many visionary community leaders, it remains remarkably wild and unspoiled.

In addition to the breathtaking scenery, during this 5-hour trip we also often encounter a wide variety of wildlife, including:

  • Blue Whales and Humpbacks Whales (June-November)
  • Gray Whales and Sperm Whales (December- May)
  • Numerous bird species
  • Dolphins and Elephant seals
  • Of course, beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Beach, Fort Cronkite, Stinson Beach, the Point Reyes national Seashore and Lighthouse
    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.
