Event Description

Have you always wanted to visit the Farallon Islands? Afraid of getting sea sick? Join us for a virtual naturalist cruise through Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary to the Farallon Islands! No dramamine necessary.
Get Into Your Sanctuary with Greater Farallones naturalists for an adventure in San Francisco’s ocean wilderness. Traveling under the Golden Gate Bridge we will journey 27 miles offshore to the intriguing Farallon Islands and, seas permitting, beyond! While underway we hope to see humpback and blue whales, seals, sea lions, porpoises, sharks, seabirds such as the tufted puffin and common murre, and other ocean wildlife! Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary protects the wildlife, habitats, and cultural resources of one of the most diverse and bountiful marine environments in the world, and area of 3,295 square miles off the northern and central California coast.
