Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association Present:

Sanctuary Explorations: Whale Watching
Sunday, May 3rd, 9:00am-12:00pm

Witness the mighty gray whale migration on this naturalist led half-day cruise. We “join” their annual northbound migration through our marine sanctuaries as they travel from their Baja California breeding grounds to their Arctic feeding grounds with their calves. Learn about their natural history, the survival challenges posed by their roughly 6,000 mile northbound journey, and their recovery from near extinction. Discover the natural history and adaptations of the seabirds, porpoises, seals and sea lions we encounter.

BOOK IT!
WHERE: Half Moon Bay, CA
WHEN: Sunday, May 3rd, 9:00am-12:00pm
