This was a great experience! The crew were very enthusiastic, and open to any and all questions. We were lucky enough to see a group of humpback whales breaching - what a treat!

Nice little outfit. Felt local and non-commercial. The folks clearly cared about the animals, and were very responsible and knowledgeable throughout the entire trip. They were careful not to take too much time with each animal, and given them space. I was just sad we didn't see a shark, but that's the luck of the draw. Not their fault at all. Take medicine beforehand if you're prone to seasickness, because you will be out on the high seas for sure.

SF Bay Whale Watching

It’s an amazing feeling to gaze into a massive animal's eyes, knowing that it possesses an equal or greater amount of intelligence and curiosity. Jim Robertson, a 26-year licensed captain, regularly shares this experience with guests in the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary aboard his Coast Guard–certified vessel. The Farallon Islands—located 27 miles off the coast of San Francisco—are home to 26 federally listed endangered or threatened species, including leatherback sea turtles and blue whales. With a staff of naturalists on board to narrate the breathtaking scenes before them, guests can peep blue, gray, and humpback whales swimming, breaching, and playing Marco Polo in their natural habitat. Along the way, they might also catch a glimpse of dolphins, seals, sea lions, and a cloudburst of native birds.

About SF Bay Whale Watching

Every day, millions of tons of snowmelt from high up in the Sierras rushes hundreds of miles downstream and pours into the San Francisco Bay. There, it slams into a surge of seawater to form an ecosystem at once constant and constantly changing. It’s there that the photographers and naturalists of SF Bay Whale Watching set out to observe and capture stunning images on daily adventures.

Onboard the stalwart Kitty Kat, captain Joe Nazar skippers wildlife-seeking tours that might spy migrating whales, local sea lions, or killer whales. The spacious deck and large-windowed cabin make beautiful views bountiful. While a naturalist lectures, the ship sails past such landmarks as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island.
