2021 Update: We are currently offering Farallon Islands whale watching trips from April - November 2021 out of Sausalito.
Due to current COVID regulations, our 2021 Golden Gate season has been postponed. Our current estimate is that we will be able to resume these trips in the summer.
Trips take place on the majestic tall-ship, The Matthew Turner, which has over 100 feet of deck to experience San Francisco Bay's sights and sounds. Our captains are experienced in nature cruises and committed to marine conservation.
Face covering is required. Warm, layered clothing with a waterproof outer layer is strongly recommended. Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are also advised.
FOOD & REFRESHMENTS
Bring your own food and beverages; there are no concessions on board. Alcohol is discouraged, but not prohibited. Backpacks are fine, but please, no coolers due to space limitations.
No smoking is allowed on Oceanic Society cruises.
Age minimum 10; an adult must accompany children under 16. Children must wear a life jacket at all times while aboard the vessel.
Trips go rain or shine, but may be cancelled due to high winds and/or high seas. All passengers will be notified via email and text should we need to cancel.
