WSV's Ultimate Cage Dive Destination Guide also includes "x-factor" pros and cons about each destination. For example, the RIDE to the Farallon Islands is, in itself, an attraction. A cruise through the San Francisco Bay passing landmarks such as Alcatraz the city skyline, Bay Bridge, and going under the Golden Gate Bridge is all conveniently included since the trips depart from the SF Bay. In addition, many species of whale and dolphin can be see on the way to and from the islands. BUT, while the trip to the islands is a pro, it is simultaneously a con. 27 miles straight out from San Francisco, this stretch of water takes over three hours to cross and is easily the roughest of all the rides to any of the cage dive destinations of the world that I've been to. You should still go, but be ready to lean over the rail and "feed the fish."
