Shark Adventures: The Farallons

One Day Great White Shark Adventures

Our one-day shark adventures depart from Fisherman's Wharf in the heart of San Francisco, California. You'll travel to the Farallons aboard a 55 ft high-speed catamaran. The New Eldorado III provides the perfect combination of speed and stability. The waters between San Francisco and the Farallons are rough even on the best weather day, so having a boat capable of tackling the waves is important to your comfort.

Sample Itinerary

Fishermans Wharf San Francisco CaliforniaArrive at the designated dock by 6:00 am to get checked in and ready for an on-time 6:30 am departure. After meeting our crew and other shark lovers and receiving a safety briefing from Captain Eddie, you'll have time to grab some breakfast. While you're eating, our Certified Farallones Naturalist will tell you more about the Farallons and share things you need to know to get the most out of your shark viewing adventure. We get all the formalities out of the way on the trip out so you can spend all your time at the Farallons either on the viewing deck or in the cage.

Topsiders will find they have a very important role. Those not cage diving serve as "lookouts", standing alongside our naturalists and scanning the horizon for signs of shark activity.

The passengers and crew of the New Eldorado III will head back to San Francisco late in the afternoon, arriving at the dock around 5 pm.

“Last Sunday's trip will be forever etched in our minds! We really enjoyed the entire adventure, starting with the great welcome on board. Seeing the Golden Gate Bridge from the bottom up in fog and mist was really neat, then the whales and birds and seals and jagged rocks. We also enjoyed talking with Peter and loved his enthusiasm for nature. You have a first-rate crew (and a large one at that). We were really impressed by the outstanding customer service the passengers received and the quality gear for staying comfortable in the water. Nan and I could have watched from the deck all day and had a great time, but it was a transforming experience to see that shark, so peaceful and powerful at the same time. What an experience.”

Pricing & Details

One Day Cage Diver Adventure - $875
Our expert shark diver team will accompany you to the best viewing areas within the Marine Sanctuary. There, we'll drop our cage and prepare to provide you with a view you'll never forget.

No dive experience is necessary. Our cages sit just below the surface. You'll be able to breathe comfortably from your snorkel or air hose while you move about the cage, taking photos and having fun.

There's no need for you to pack your dive gear. All you need to bring is a mask and snorkel and warm clothes for before and after your dive. We'll provide a wet suit for you to wear during your dives and meals and refreshments on board. The waters near the Farallons are cold and murky but you'll be nice and toasty when the shark action heats up.

Top Shark Adventure - $375
If you want to see great white sharks but prefer them a little further away, we offer great top-side shark viewing from our observation deck. Help scan the horizon for fins and watch for breaching sharks attacking their prey. Be sure to dress warm and in lots of layers.

The Details
Dives are currently offered select Saturdays and Sundays, during the months of September, October and November. (We've picked the prime months for shark viewing.) Our boat can comfortably accommodate 12 or more cage divers and up to 6 top-siders.

Important Notes

There's No Shark Guarantee
Although we go to the best places at the best time of year, we cannot guarantee you'll see sharks. We've been very successful in past shark seasons and expect another incredible year. However, if we see no sharks, there is no refund. If we are unable to deliver your adventure due to weather or unforeseen mechanical problems, there is no refund. We will work with you to reschedule your cage dive or top-side experience for a future date.

Seasickness Happens
There is a good chance you'll experience a bit of seasickness on our shark adventures. Even our experienced shark dive crew still gets seasick from time to time. You can help minimize your chances by taking a seasickness remedy both the night before your great white shark trip and the morning of your trip. If you do start to feel poorly on the ride out to the Farallons, our staff is there to help you. Often a little time on the deck in the fresh air is all it takes to make you feel better.

Farallones Webcam
The California Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and PRBO Conservation Science have teamed up to launch a live streaming web camera. This camera, which sits atop the lighthouse, can be used to observe breeding bird colonies, and breeding seal and sea lion colonies. It can also be used to observe ocean conditions and the off-shore activity of birds, whales and, possibly, great white sharks.
