Whale Watching! We're not talking about the kind in Las Vegas. Take a boat from the Marina (the one with the boats, rather than blonds) out to the Farallon Islands and watch whales as they migrate along the coast. Also dolphins and the occasional Great White shark snacking on sea lion. The expedition boats are fairly small- you get a sense of how really huge the Pacific Ocean and the whales are. Awesome, in that old religious jaw-dropping and wide-eyed meaning, from a mostly open boat for about eight hours. Don't leave serious sunscreen, hat and sunglasses at home, and bring some wet-weather gear for the splashy moments. [Oceanic Society]
