Oceanic Society Whale Watching
See gray whales, humpbacks, dolphins, seals and sea birds on board Oceanic Society Whale Watching boat tours. The Oceanic Society offers excursions out of San Francisco Bay and Half Moon Bay depending on the time of year.
Gray whales migrate south to the warm waters of Baja California beginning in late November. The whales give birth there and return north during spring. Their travels are not far offshore along the California coast where they find ample feeding grounds. Oceanic Society three-hour boat tours leave Half Moon Bay beginning in December to watch an estimated 15,000 gray whales head south and return north.
Eight-hour Farallon Islands whale watching cruises begin May 30 through November from San Francisco. The rocky islands 27 miles offshore are home to colonies of nesting seabirds and seals. Eighteen species of whales and dolphins, including blue whales, have been sited off the Farallons.
All tours include a naturalist guide. Boats are USCG approved vessels with licensed captains. Oceanic Society boats observe the rules for safe whale watching.
