Whale Watch

Fundraiser 2014

~Registration is open~


Join us for a great day on the water to see the amazing wildlife of the Sanctuary first-hand while supporting FMSA!

You, your family, and friends are invited to join us for an adventure-filled day exploring the rich habitat of Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. This exploration and whale watch trip is expected to raise over $10,000 to support FMSA's work to protect and promote this unique ocean Sanctuary.

Space is limited!

The Sanctuary is home to whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, sharks, the largest seabird colony in the lower 48 states and much more. Expert naturalists will provide a world of information about the Sanctuary's history, resources, sea life, programs, and the conservation challenges it faces today. We will be lead by Captain Joe Nazar, owner of San Francisco Whale Tours, who is generously contributing his boat Kitty Kat for the daylong outing.

The minimum donation to reserve your spot on the trip is $275 per person ($245 is tax-deductible); includes boat trip, naturalist-led education and wildlife spotting, continental breakfast, light lunch and beverages. 
Please register today! To reserve your spot on the boat, please contact Carolyn Gibson at cgibson@farallones.org.
We hope that you will join us on October 26th and thank you for your support of Gulf of the Farallones!
