We were never disappointed with the tour- staff were professional and friendly. 21/2 hours flew by as we followed a whale across the bay. It was a treat to travel under the Golden Gate Bridge. The website provided good information about what to expect and how to dress for trip. Whale Girl is a wealth of knowledge about sea life and we learned many interesting and obscure facts. Did you know that a whale's age can be determined by studying its ear wax?
Thank you to San Francisco Whale Tours!

We took the 2.5 hour trip in the bay. It is absolutely awesome to go under the golden gate bridge and see the dolphins. We were lucky to see some humpback whales one of which breached the water very close to our boat. I would definitely recommend trying it!

The Naturalist guide on the boat was extremely knowledgeable, and we were able to see a whale right away and follow it for our entire tour. The boat was more comfortable than I was expecting, and not packed full of people, which made it a more pleasant experience.

It was great! We saw a lot of whales. It was very cold though. Bring heavy coats and maybe a blanket. Great staff, guide was very knowledgeable!
