See the Whales
No Bucket List would be complete without a whale watching trip!
San Francisco Whale Tours provides exciting all day tours year round to the Farallon Islands, which are a group of islands and rocks in the Gulf of the Farallones, 27 miles off the coast of San Francisco. Obviously, the goal is whale sighting, and this time of year the Humpback. Grey and Killer Whales are migrating. Don’t worry if you don’t see any whales on your trip; if you miss the whales, the next trip is free.
You can also take an exciting marine mammal wildlife trip along the San Francisco Bay and Northern California Coastline. You might see elephant seals, dolphin, porpoises and sea bird colonies. Experience the gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Cronkite, Muir Beach, Stinson Beach and more.
