Sample Two Day Shark
Friday: Check in to our "great white
shark hotel" between 7 pm and 9 pm. the night prior to your
scheduled adventure. Receive a quick tour of the boat and
learn the ground rules for staying safe aboard a real working
expedition vessel. You'll receive your bunk assignment and
learn where to store your gear. After check-in, you're free
to go into town for dinner. (We'll have snacks and beverages
on the boat, but no dinner will be provided the night you
It's important that you're back on board by
9 pm for a pre-trip safety briefing. We enforce a strict
curfew so everyone is well-rested and ready for the two
incredible days to come. If you decide not to explore town,
you can hang out in the lounge watching shark movies.
Saturday: We'll depart very, very early
for the Farallons, but since you'll be safely tucked in
your bunk, you're welcome to sleep in a bit. A hot breakfast
will be served on the way out to the Sanctuary. As we get
closer to the Farallons, everyone will gather in the big
TV room for a presentation from our naturalist and a briefing
from our dive instructor. Once on location at our favorite
shark viewing spot, we'll drop the cages and let the fun
Out at the Farallons, we'll meet up with Captain
Eddie and the crew and passengers aboard the New Eldorado
III, the 55 ft day boat used for our one-day shark adventures
out of Fisherman's Wharf. Throughout the day, the two boats
and crews will work in tandem, making sure IA shark cage
divers get to spend lots of time in the water. Topsiders
on both vessels 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
Late in the afternoon, passengers on the New
Eldorado III have to return to San Francisco. You're
lucky - you get to stay at the

Pricing & Details
Two Day Overnight Farallons Expedition
No dive experience is necessary. Our cages sit just below
the surface. You can make use of the hookah
system, or if you prefer, bring a snorkel. You'll
be able to breathe comfortably from your snorkel or air
hose while you move about the cage, taking photos and having
There's no need for you to pack all your
dive gear. All you need to bring is a mask and optional
snorkel. We'll provide a wet suit, booties and gloves for
you to wear during your dives. The waters near the Farallons
are cold and murky so we provide a 7 mil suit, the warmest
wet suit made. Please pack lightly, but remember to bring
plenty of warm clothes and any personal items and prescription
medications you may need while at sea. And don't forget
your camera and batteries. (The nearest store will be 30
miles away and to get there, you'll have to be a very strong
Our two-day Farallons expedition is limited
to just 12 cage divers. This program is officially open
to only cage divers. If you want to experience life in the
Farallons but don't want to dive, ask us. We might be able
to make room for you.
Our two-day great white shark expeditions
are currently offered weekends only, from late September
to mid-November. (We've picked the prime months for shark
viewing.) Contact us for availability.
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.
