Farallon Islands Whale Watching with Oceanic Society

Sunday, August 13 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 3, 2017

| $128

Join Oceanic Society on a day trip from San Francisco or Sausalito to the wonderful and wild Farallon Islands, one of the most diverse and exciting marine environments on Earth. 36 species of marine mammals, including 18 species of whales and dolphins, and more than 250,000 nesting seabirds can be found here.

Each trip is led by an expert naturalist who assists with locating whales, identifying seabirds and other marine life, and who provide informative presentations throughout the trip on the islands and marine ecology of the area.

Your trip supports ocean conservation. Oceanic Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to ocean conservation. Your participation in our whale watching trips helps fund our global ocean conservation programs and supports local programs including whale entanglement response. Moreover, we use our whale watching cruises as an opportunity to collect photographic identification data on whales, which we share with a network of researchers throughout the eastern Pacific. You can see our recently photographed whales on Happywhale. Through our whale watching trips, we also help transport biologists and staff members to and from the Farallon Islands in support of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Point Blue Conservation Science.
