Sharktober: Farallon Islands Wildlife Adventure

Journey into the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and Visit the Waters of the Devils Teeth

Join Shark expert David McGuire on a unique exploration into the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, observing, photographing and recording marine wildlife from seabirds to whales, and maybe even a great white shark!

Note: These trips are not affiliated with the Earth Island Institute.

We lead these unique trips each Sharktober when the white sharks return from their amazing migration of over 4000 miles round trip to forage in our National Marine Sanctuary. As part of NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary White Shark Stewardship program, we collect data using photographs and observations on whales, seabirds and white sharks while educating the public on the importance of white sharks and all life in the ocean.

These unique natural history trips to the Devil’s Teeth, (the Island of the Great White Shark) focus on the history, geology and biology of the Greater Farallones and San Francisco Bay. We only book in fall when the white sharks return and the weather is clement for our passengers and students. We focus on shark conservation and the health of the entire marine ecosystem in our sanctuary. Although we will watch whales and seabirds, and seek sharks- these trips are conservation and outdoor marine education and are not shark specifically watching of diving trips- but we often see sharks!
