About San Francisco Whale Tours
The focus of the expedition is a search for the majestic giants of the oceans-whales- including Gray and Humpback Whales! Join us aboard exciting excursions from the SF Bay and into the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. We head out on our stable catamaran beginning in San Francisco, heading out under the Golden Gate Bridge. We may visit Harbor Seals in Diablo Cove and California Sea Lions at Point Bonita then head out through the Golden Gate Strait known for Harbor Porpoise and whales!

My wife and I booked a tour to see the Blue Angels on the Kitty Kat. Our Captain and crew were awesome! The Captain put us in a perfect location for viewing the show. He put us right in front of the blocked out safety 'square' and used Alcatraz as a wind block... BRILLIANT! Made viewing the show an excellent experience.

Whale watching on 10/16/21 The captain worked so hard to find whales for us!! We ended up 25 miles out, but boy was it worth it! A most awesome display of about a dozen or more whales feeding!❤️👏🏻👍🏻🐳🐋

You felt safe with the Capitan at the helm going out into the deep blue ocean looking for whales. Sara, the crew was a marine specialist, she knew what to look for and when we found our group of about 5 whales feeding, she was full of information. We also saw a Harbor porpoise, Sea Lions and a number of birds.....a rare find was the Mola Mola fish!! It was awesome

The first trip was so foggy - a whale might have had to drench the boat to see it… The captain was so awesome he invited anyone who wanted to stay. It was an amazing 5.5 hours on the ocean! Thanks to an amazing Captain and Crew!
