Join Shark Stewards on their unique Sharktober educational adventures to the Farallon Islands. There are hundreds of Humpback Whales feeding in the Sanctuary, Blue Whales, Fin Whales, leaping Thresher Sharks and a Leatherback Sea Turtle was spotted! Sharktober is upon us and the white sharks are returning from their 4000 miles plus migration.

They only book a few exclusive trips in the fall when the white sharks return and the weather is clement for the passengers and college students. Shark Stewards focuses on shark conservation and the health of the entire marine ecosystem in the newly expanded National Marine Sanctuary. The vessel and naturalist are permitted by the Sanctuary for Shark Viewing. Although they will seek and talk about sharks- these trips are conservation and outdoor marine education and not explicitly shark watching trips.

They are accepting reservations for  November 13th 2016.
