Snorkeling San Francisco Bay, Northern Coast California

The waters off San Francisco are cold and muddy, which doesn't make for good snorkeling, since you won't be able to see the wildlife very well. Plus, the Bay is 50 miles long and from 3 to 13 miles wide, with heavy boat and ship traffic. Another option to consider is Montery Bay, which is 1-1/2 to 2 hours south of San Francisco, depending upon where you stay. If you're hardcore and really want to snorkel San Francisco Bay, you'll need a full websuit.
