Overview
Admission to Alcatraz can be hard to come by—the popular attraction is often sold out months in advance. Guarantee entrance to the prison, while cruising the San Francisco Bay by day and night with this combo tour package. Along with a round-trip ferry ride and admission to Alcatraz, you also sail the bay during the evening and enjoy onboard music, drinks, a buffet, and two deck options for ultimate viewing.
What to Expect
To start off this combo tour, head to Pier 33 to catch the ferry to Alcatraz Island.
Once you reach the island, go on a self-guided audio tour and listen to award-winning commentary available in 11 languages. You can also tour its historic gardens and spot birds and wildlife. After viewing Alcatraz, take the ferry back to Pier 33 in time to catch your evening cruise.
Your next cruise takes off in the evening from Pier 43, so make your way with plenty of time to board the boat. On the boat, you decide if you’d like to stay outside on the deck or head to the inside deck to stay warm. Both decks offer views as you sail under the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. The cruise also includes a buffet of light appetizers, a drink ticket for wine or beer, and onboard commentary and live music.
Your cruise ends back at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Both were excellent and well worth doing, I would recommend both these trips. They are good value for money and I would advise booking these trips well in advance as they are very popular.

Bit of a queue to get our tickets for Alcatraz but once we had them all was good. Ferry over was nice, good to see San Francisco from another side. The sea mist descended and added an eerie atmosphere to the arrival. Once on the...More

Cruise commenced at 6pm and was about 2 hrs. Great views of the bays, Golden Gate Bridge and marinas. The trip price included one drink plus a good buffet. Relaxing way to finish off a busy day. Crew were friendly and helpful.
