FARALLON ISLAND NATURE
CRUISES & ECO TOURS
FRLN - DISCOVER THE FARALLON ISLANDS!!
(8hrs) Nature & History Excursions
In spring and summer nearly a quarter million seabirds nest
on the stark granite cliffs that rise sharply from the Pacific,
just 27 miles from the Golden Gate. Nutrient rich upwellings
from the nearby edge of the Continental Shelf attract marine
life of all kinds - from tiny plankton to endangered humpback
and blue whales - the largest animals to ever live. From
our 63 foot Coast Guard certified vessel we observe marine
mammals in the surf or hauled out on the island: California
sea lions, northern elephant seals, Steller's sea lions,
harbor seals - perhaps fur seals. The Farallon Islands National
Wildlife Refuge is the largest seabird rookery in the eastern
Pacific south of Alaska, with Tufted Puffins, Pigeons Guillemots,
Rhinoceros Auklets, murres, oystercatchers and cormorants.
We scan the horizon for albatross, jaegers and shearwaters.
Many trips encounter humpback or blue whales.
While underway we may acquire an escort of bow-riding Dall's
porpoise, see Pacific whitesided or Risso's dolphins or
glimpse elusive harbor porpoise. Since 1972 Oceanic society
experts naturalists, selected for their leadership ability
and enthusiasm, have conducted natural history trips: whale
watches, Farallon cruises, and international ecotours around
the world. Naturalists help spot whales and provide information
about the natural and human history of the islands and the
surrounding marine environment. Must
bring Foul Weather / Waterproof Gear, Lunch & Drink. Minimum
age: 10 years.
Time: Sat & Sun. 8-4pm
WHALE - WHALE WATCHING (5hrs) Monterey or Half Moon Bay
Each year gray whales embark on one of the longest migrations
of any mammal. Swimming 6,000 miles from their Arctic feeding
grounds, they head south past the California coast to the
protected lagoons of Baja California. Traveling alone or
in groups of up to twelve, they reach Baja in six to eight
weeks. They may travel 20 hrs and 100 miles each day in
their urgency to reach the lagoons. They return north during
the spring to the Arctic; this is when the whale cows can
be seen accompanied by their newborn calves. Because their
migration brings them so close to the coastline at many
points, they are more easily observed along the west coast
than any other cetacean.
Gray whales were considered commercially
extinct in the early 20th century. However, legal protection
has enabled their population to regain historic levels.
Oceanic Society Expeditions has conducted educational gray
Whale Watch trips on California since 1974.
