NOW LEAVING FROM MARINA BAY YACHT HARBOR - RICHMOND MARINA IN SAN FRANCISCO'S EAST BAY

Farallons MapThe Gulf of the Farrallones National 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 the Derek M. Baylis, a vessel carefully chosen for the ability to provide comfortable travel to such a remote and often harsh place by sail or by motor. 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 Farallon Islands. 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.

White Shark Season at the Farallones is September 15 to November 30.

“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"

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.

A message from the Gulf of the Farllones National Marine Sanctuary

Great White Shark Adventures Shark diving crews make your dive safe for you and for the sharks Great White Sharks in the Farrallons (Farallones)
  • The Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary protects the wildlife and habitats of one of the most diverse and bountiful marine environments in the world.
  • White sharks depend on the rich sanctuary ecosystem and as apex predators, play a key role in maintaining a balanced ecosystem.
  • White sharks are considered internationally threatened and they need protection.
  • Common myths have vilified white sharks. Debunk the myth - we are more of a threat to them then they are to us.

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.

Fog in the Farallon Islands

“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.” ~ Amy Sorlie, Great White

Incredible Adventures conducts its great white shark expeditions according to the terms and conditions set out in National Marine Sanctuary Permit GFNMS-2015-011-A3.
