The Silver Fox is San Francisco's premier sport fishing and charter boat, conveniently docked at Pier 47 slip #2 on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. The Silver Fox is one of only three boats in the world that has a license to provide shark tours to the public at the renowned Farallones Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Captained by Chris Duba, an expert fisherman and international airline pilot, the Silver Fox has been passed down for generations and offers a host of activities ranging from sport fishing, San Francisco Bay tours, great white shark tours, birthday, anniversary, and corporate parties on the water, as well as burials at sea.

Measuring in at 50 feet long with an interior cabin, the Silver Fox is steel hulled, recently refurbished, and one of the most stable and comfortable boats in the fleet. We supply the fishing gear and have an outstanding customer service oriented crew that are more than willing to teach a newbie how to cast a fishing pole while entertaining with you with stories and the history of San Francisco while on a Bay tour and if requested we can serve drinks at your corporate event or private party! We promise you will leave with great memories!

The Farallon Islands are the only place on earth where it's possible to study great white sharks behaving naturally in the wild. We are certified and licensed by the Gulf of The Farallones National Marine Sancutuary whose mission it is to protect the wildlife and habitats of one of the most diverse and bountiful marine environments in the world. Every September, one of the world's largest and densest congreations of great white sharks assembles in the waters surrounding the Farallon Islands, a 211-acre area of ten islets of the Pacific, 27 miles due west of the Golden Gate Bridge. People come from all over the world to observe these powerful creatures. They depend on the rich sanctuary ecosystem and as apex predators, play a key role in maintaining a balanced ecosystem. Common myths have vilified white sharks however, in truth, we are more of a threat to them than they are to us.White sharks are considered internationally threatened and they need protection. It has been said that they are the closest thing we have to living dinosaurs. 


We leave from Fisherman’s Wharf, behind Castagnolia’s and next to Scoma’s Restaurant. You may wish to use Anchorage Parking on Beach at Jones.
