Overview
You will explore the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on Alcatraz Island with America’s most ruthless criminals including Al Capone. The ferry will leave on time at your specific time scheduled. You have to be 30 minutes before departure time at Pier 33. Walk, bike, ride public transportation, or drive (as a last resort)…easy access from anywhere around the Bay! When you are on the Island, follow the Cellhouse audio tour “Doing Time” (45 min) available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. With that you have another ticket for an amazing SF Bay Cruise Adventure of 60min. You can use the SF Bay Cruise any day at any departure every 40-60min from 10am to 6pm. Sail past the famous PIER 39 sea lions and along San Francisco’s historic waterfront, revealing the city’s fascinating skyline. Please contact us if you have any question or special requests.

This was a great day out and a fantastic experience. I was skeptical about the audio tour and expected a rather mundane description of the prison but couldn't have been more wrong. The audio tour was extremely interesting and gave you fantastic insights about the prison and life
