Take the plunge into the underwater world beyond the Golden Gate into the Gulf of the Farallones

Blubber-Lovers Unite! Take the plunge into the underwater world beyond the Golden Gate into the Gulf of the Farallones, where dolphins leap, white sharks prowl, giant blue whales lunge through seething masses of krill, humpbacks breach and land with a thundering splash, and where seabirds enact their timeless rituals of courtship and mating. Discover where the "hot spots" are for the many of the whale species that visit this National Marine Sanctuary year-round, and - whether you are a confirmed land-lubber or salty dog, find out how you can experience them! 

Join sanctuary spokesperson Mary Jane Schramm for this virtual excursion into the briny deep! Co-author of West Coast Whale Watching (Harper Collins), MJ has led whale watching cruises in Baja California and locally. Her field experience includes cetacean and pinniped rescue, and assisting with research on humpbacks,  elephant seals, and other marine mammals. MJ is currently Public Information Officer for NOAA's Large Whale Disentanglement Network in the Bay Area. 


Mary Jane Schramm is the Media and Public Outreach Specialist with the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. In addition to working as whale watch and natural history cruise naturalist in the waters off California and Mexico, her field experience includes extended research cruises for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
