Great White Shark Expeditions to the Farallon Islands off of San Francisco
"Venture Ye not to the edge of the chart,
for here there be Monsters." ~ Ancient Map
Great White Shark Expeditions are an incredible adventure to a bunch of rocks about thirty miles from the San Mateo, San Francisco and Marin County coasts.
 

The Continental Shelf and open ocean are just past the Farallon Islands.

Late summer and autumn have always had the best weather for the islands and the Bay Area.

If we cancel a trip due to weather, there is no cost. Deposits, if charged will be refunded or applied to a future trip if it is available for your schedule.

 

We have a high standard for weather.

Weather systems most often keep the marine layer (low cold clouds) far offshore during shark season.

The ocean can change on short notice, and the wind never fails to blow when two weather system collide close to land.

It's not danger; it can cold or maybe a little wet, or be difficult to see a whale let alone a shark.

However, each day is different.

There is always an area to watch sharks where the island is blocking the wind and waves from the open ocean. It may be a little larger or smaller each day, with plenty of room to watch seals passing through.

The Farallon Islands are worth a visit even in the roughest of weather; in fact, we are planning for special photography workshops when the weather is right, with large waves from the open ocean - just like those associated with the Mavericks surfing competitions on the San Mateo coast.

Waves can wash over the Great Arch, a giant natural bridge rising eight or ten stories above the water.

Sea lions and giant seals move fast through the waves. Birds are in every direction.

A great white's ferocious attack is unmistakable in any water conditions.

The strongest weather might make the most visual experience, especially for fine art nature photographers.
