The Sanctuary Explorations Series provides monthly opportunities for you to connect with, and experience, your national marine sanctuaries. Through these adventures we hope to inspire an ocean conservation ethic and wildlife etiquette through experiential learning while having fun and exploring the amazing habitats within and adjacent to the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. We hope you can join us for one of our upcoming Sanctuary Explorations!

Upcoming Sanctuary Explorations
Sanctuary Explorations: Gray Whale Watching
Saturday, April 21st, 2018 9:00am-12:00pm
Witness the mighty gray whale migration on this half-day cruise. Join our sanctuary naturalists as we venture into the northbound migration path of the gray whale as they head through our marine sanctuaries, traveling from Baja California breeding grounds to their Arctic feeding grounds with their calves. Learn about their natural history, their recovery from near extinction, and the survival challenges posed by their roughly 12,000 mile round-trip journey. Discover the natural history and adaptations of the seabirds, porpoises, seals and sea lions we encounter.

Join Greater Farallones sanctuary naturalists and a California State Park Environmental Scientist for a 4 mile coastal wildflower and whale walk!
