Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary (CBNMS) is a critical offshore oasis for a diversity of wildlife. Located 20 miles west of the Point Reyes Lighthouse, this granitic bank is a lush feeding ground for fish, invertebrates, seabirds and marine mammals. Discover why this region has one of the largest concentrations of blue whales in the world and is a destination for numerous seabirds. There are two boat trips to choose from! The instructors all have a strong interest in and knowledge of the CBNMS and the California current ecosystem. As we cruise out to the Bank, we may encounter pods of pacific white-sided dolphins, Dall’s porpoise, seals, and numerous seabirds. We’ll observe and learn about whatever the ocean offers that day, be it seabirds, marine mammals, blue sharks, jellies and more!
