San Francisco Whale Watching



Join us for an whale watching adventure of a lifetime!

Come whale watching in San Francisco and see Humpback Whales, Blue Whales, Killer Whales, Great White Sharks, Dall’s Porpoise, White sided dolphins and many more.

The adventure begins at San Francisco’s historical Fisherman’s Wharf. Our whale watching boat is a 50 foot Coast Guard certified vessel, and manned by a crew with more than 80 years experience.

Go under the famous Golden Gate Bridge, and head up the beautiful Marin Coast while enjoying some of our inner coastal marine mammals such as the Minke Whale, Harbor Porpoise, California Sea Lions and San Francisco Harbor Seals.

For the bird watching fan you may spot sea birds like the Common Murre, Parasitic Jaegers, Pelicans, Oystercatchers and Cormorants.

In addition, we often see several rare species of pelagic birds such as the Tufted Puffin, Black-footed or Layson’s Albatross, Cassins Auklet, Rhinoceros Auklets, Western and Clarks Grebes, Northern Fulmar, Phalaropes, different species of Shearwaters and many, many more!

Heading west, watch the coast disappear as we venture farther into the Pacific Ocean towards the infamous Farallon Islands.

On the way out to the Farallones you never know what you might see on our whale watching tours.

We encounter numerous creatures such as the Blue Whale, the largest animal to ever live. You might see a playful Humpback Whale jumping, breeching or spy-hopping. You could see the king of the sea, the Killer Whale. Sometimes we run into Leather Back Sea Turtles, the largest of all turtles.

You might even get to see one of the most respected and awesome creatures of all, the Great White Shark.
