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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
