The Incredible Great White Shark Adventure
Photo Gallery | Video

Travel by boat 30 miles off the coast of California to San Francisco's Farallon Islands, one of the best places in the world to view Great White Sharks. Cage dive with Great White Sharks the size of cars in the world's largest shark cage - and you don't have to be a diver.

Your Great White Shark day expedition begins when you board our shark boat at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. We typically leave the dock by 6:30 am in order to be on location in time to witness early morning feeding events and are back at the dock before 5 pm. Great white sharks feed on the population of seals who inhabit the Farallones.

Our boat is equipped to easily handle 12 or more cage divers and 6 topside viewers in comfort.

Is Shark Diving Dangerous?
White sharks have many myths surrounding them. One is that they are killing machines attacking anything in sight. We have found that even at the height of a feeding event with multiple animals around a carcass, white sharks prove to be shy, slow moving animals. Our divers are amazed to learn first hand that these animals are almost gentle. Of course, divers should always maintain a healthy respect for these awesome predators, in and out of the water!

Do I need to be a Certified Diver?
You do not need to be dive certified to enjoy an incredible great white shark adventure, but this adventure is best for those who have had some snorkeling or underwater experience. Our boat is equipped with a hookah diving system, which allows participants to connect to an air source onboard. This eliminates the need to wear air tanks, which would restrict your movement within the cage. Those uncomfortable underwater can join our adventure as a topside observer and watch shark action from the deck.

An online course in hookah diving is available. We highly recommend it to anyone who is not experienced underwater.

Adventure Location
Dives take place in The Gulf of the Farallons National Marine Sanctuary. Located just off the coast of San Francisco, the Farallon Islands are considered one of the top places in the world to view great white sharks.

We cannot guarantee you will see great white sharks. We will take you to the best viewing spots during the best time of year, but nature can be unpredictable. If you do not see sharks, there is no refund.

Diver Requirements
No dive certification is required if you are over the age of 18. Anyone under the age of 18 must be dive certified and accompanied by a parent or guardian. Topside viewing is open to anyone age 10 or older who is accompanied by a responsible adult.

Equipment Required
We will provide you with a wet suit to wear during your cage dive or you may bring your own. You will receive a suggested packing list for your day at sea prior to your adventure. Please keep in mind that seas can be rough and the waters near the Farallons are known for being cold and murky.

Cage Diver San Francisco is offered in cooperation with Ocean Outreach

Ocean Outreach, Inc.
Ocean Outreach, Inc. is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization founded in April 2002, by the Taylor brothers: explorer/ naturalist Tim, entrepreneur/businessman Dan, and Air Force Lt. Colonel Andrew. It aims to create educational outreach projects and support ongoing scientific research. Many of these programs have evolved from the work currently established by Tim Taylor and Research Vessel Tiburon Inc. Ocean Outreach understands the desire and recognizes the ability of people to affect change in their world. By giving our shark expedition participants knowledge, tools and first hand experience, we provide a structure in which they may act as agents of this change to spread awareness about environmental issues, cultural projects and their connection to the ocean's ecosystem and our heritage. In this manner we foster an awareness we hope will find its way to the forefront of our national conscience.

You’ll board our giant shark boat at Fisherman's Wharf. The marina is conveniently located in the heart of San Francisco.
