Here's a random option: http://www.sanfranciscowhaletours.com

I've never been whale watching here, but I have seen migrating whales off the coast of Ocean Beach near Fort Funston while walking the dogs on the weekend.

Many of the area's sportfishing boats do whale watching tours during the fishing off-season:

An advice I'd like to give you along - the Pacific Ocean can be pretty rough so you might want to bring some seasickness pills!! (I also got the advice to try ginger... I never tried it myself though)

Have fun!

It's most effective if you also take a pill the night before as well as in the morning.
