What is 'Sharktober'?

Scientists and surfers call this time of year 'Sharktober,' when white sharks return from their annual migration far out in the Pacific to feed in the Gulf of the Farallones, 28 miles out to sea from San Francisco.

Sharktoberfest is a fun way for the whole family to learn about sharks and how critical they are to ocean health. We hope to see you there this Saturday!
