San Francisco Whale Tours
Whale watching in San Francisco is a popular, year-round activity. Gray and humpback whales migrate through the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, and you can have a front seat to the action on a tour. The tour company wants to ensure that you see the whales in action, that if you don't spot a whale the first time around, your second trip is on them.
