Alcatraz Trip


I am going to San Francisco early September and I would like to go on a night trip to alcatraz. I am thinking about going with www.alcatrazcruises.com. Can anybody tell me if this is the best company to go with. Also would the 6.10pm or 6.45 trip be better. Ideally I would like to see alcatraz by day and when the sunsets.

Thank you in advance

Kerry,good choice,Alcatraz is a wonderful trip night or day,be aware tho' that the night tour does not run every day & wrap up well as it gets pretty chilly out on 'the rock'

alcatrazcruises.com is the official site for booking tours of Alcatraz. Do not book with unauthorized resellers, who may inflate the price.

Sunset in early September is around 7:30PM. I imagine either of these tours will have you out there at sunset.

As others have said, www.alcatrazcruises.com is the official concessionaire. The evening tour is not done every day, so check their website as you plan your itinerary. And book ahead, the evening tour is the most popular (and fewer of them).
