Join Shark Conservationist and Naturalist David McGuire and other wildlife specialists celebrating sharks in a life-changing experience searching the Gulf of the Farallones for whales, wildlife and our finny friends. Join us exiting beneath the Golden Gate for amazing photo and wildlife opportunities entering the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary on a modern day wildlife expedition.

These are Farallon Island -ecocentric expeditions. We focus on sharks and shark conservation, and the marine wildlife of the Gulf of the Farallones. We are shark specialists and conservationists, not a commercial enterprise, and lead specialized education and conservation experiences during what we call “Sharktober.” NEW: onboard ROV with live feed camera!

NOTE: our trips are ecosystem, conservation, and education wildlife trips and not explicitly shark watching trips. We see whales, seabirds and other mysterious denizens of the deeps- and at times we do see sharks. We are one of the few outfits permitted under NOAA”s White Shark StewardshipProgram to deploy a decoy and we may do so. However, we do not spend all day at the island searching for sharks. While we focus on shark biology and behavior while at the island and may possibly see a predation or dorsal fin, these are not the primary focus of our trips. If you want to join a shark viewing/cage diving trip please visit the NOAA site for conditions and recommended operators. Once leaving the Bay our mission is to make the islands.
