Great White Shark Adventures in San Francisco

Dive the Farallon Islands - It's an incredible great white shark adventure.

You don't have to be a certified diver to climb into our shark cage for a chance encounter with one of the ocean's most feared predators.

Map: Gulf of the Farallones Marine SanctuaryThe Gulf of the Farrallones Marine Sanctuary is home to some of the world's largest great white sharks. These islands (Southeast Farallon and Maintop Island) off the coast of San Francisco are the winter water playground of adult great white sharks measuring 15 to 20 feet long. (4.5 meters to 6.1 meters). (More info on the history of the Marine Sanctuary here.) The sharks come to the Farrallons to dine on the local population of Northern Elephant Seals. You'll find yourself rooting for the seals as they compete in a race for their lives against some of the planet's most incredible marine predators. Watching this natural great white feeding event is an experience you'll never forget.

Incredible Adventures will take you to this very special place aboard one of two vessels carefully chosen for their ability to provide comfortable travel to such a remote and often harsh place. Together with our team of dive instructors, naturalists and shark diving specialists, you'll experience nature like you've never experienced it before.

We don't chum the waters or otherwise interfere with life at the Farallons. Decoys may be used to attract great white sharks closer to the boat so you can better observe these magnificent creatures, but we are really at the Farallons to observe natural feeding events. This isn't a trip to your local aquarium. It's a rare opportunity to watch as a giant great white shark chases and consumes its prey.

“There is only one reason to visit the Farallon Islands: Because it is the spookiest, wildest place on earth.”
~ Susan Casey, author of "The Devil's Teeth,
A True Story of Obsession and Survival Among America's Great White Sharks"

Peter Winch, Farallones Visitor Center Naturalist, explains why the Farallons is one of the top places in the world to see great white sharks:

Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association“Cold water upwelling produces large plankton blooms, making this the best place to come for food for all types of wildlife.

Humpback whales and blue whales travel all the way from southern Mexico and Costa Rica to feast on the abundance of anchovies and krill. Leatherback sea turtles journey from Indonesia to eat the jellyfish, and sea birds called shearwaters come from Australia to fatten up on the fish.

The shelter and isolation of the magnificent Farallon Islands make these outcrops the largest seabird colony in the contiguous United States. Five different types of seal and sea lion also shelter there, which in turn are food for the oceans most thrilling and perfect predator…. the Great White Shark.

To the north of The Farallones is another National Marine Sanctuary, the underwater island or seamount, Cordell Bank. Directly south of The Farallones lies the Monterey National Marine Sanctuary, a massive underwater canyon with an abundance of diverse species.”

The Devil's Teeth, as it's known, is a 211-acre cluster of rocky, jagged islands that not only are a sanctuary for some of the most endangered marine wildlife but, from September to November, also serve as a refuge for the biggest white sharks in the world. It takes a true adventure seeker to embark on this trip, long known as the Mount Everest of shark dives.”
