The Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary protects an area of 948 square nautical miles (1,255 square miles) off the northern and central California coast. Located just a few miles from San Francisco, the waters within the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary are part of a nationally significant marine ecosystem. Encompassing a diversity of highly productive marine habitats, the Sanctuary supports an abundance of species.
There are many ways to explore the sanctuaries even if you can't get out in a boat. Many beaches, overlooks and other access areas allow you to reach out and touch the Sanctuary, enjoy its views and see its diverse wildlife. The Sanctuary's visitor centers are one of the first places to start to learn about this ocean wilderness beyond the Golden Gate.
