The Farallon Islands

Terri Watson, Executive Director, Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association

Though visible on a clear day, few people have been out to the Farallon Islands, just 27 miles off our coast. The Farallon Islands and the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary are an important and biologically diverse ecosystem, closely connected to the health of our local environment and economy. Because of this rich marine life, the U.S. commerce secretary designated this ocean wilderness as a National Marine Sanctuary in 1981. Come learn about the natural history and wildlife of this extraordinary “national underwater park" and the islands within it.
