  • Be aware that we will be out on the ocean all day, so if you do get sea sick please be prepared
  • Attention Whale Watchers: Dress for an outing on the Sea, come for the worst weather and prepare as if you going to the Moon. You can always dress in layers and adjust for any weather. The last thing we want is you to be Cold or Wet and not enjoy your trip. The reason were stressing the Foul Weather Gear is because we are going to travel on the Pacific Ocean and weather conditions can vary to the hour. Its better to over dress than show up in shorts and flip flops,this trip is not a day on the beach,its an intense expedition on the Pacific Ocean to explore the wonders of Our Oceans. This note from the crew at San Francisco Whale Tours
