Alcatraz & Angel Island Tour

  • October 7, 2012 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I've been here for almost 8 years and have NEVER been to Alcatraz!  It's time to fix that.  If you're in the same boat (or haven't been in the boat yet), join us!


A combination tour of two of the Bay's most famous islands: Alcatraz and Angel Island. Includes ferry rides to and from Angel Island and Alcatraz, a one-hour narrated Tram Tour of Angel Island, and the Alcatraz Cellhouse Audio Tour "Doing Time". Allow 5½ hours to complete your visit to both islands.



-Ticket Price is $60 per person

-Book the 9:30am cruise NOT the 9:35am cruise.  They each start with opposite islands!

-The ticket ordering site is totally whacked out right now so they recommend making your reservations by phone:[masked] (ROCK).

-They ask all attendees to be at the dock 30 minutes before the tour departure, so be there at 9am sharp.

    Hi Christy. Will said there should be something around the pier, but once we are on the cruise, we are not sure.

      I eventually found that they will serve food and beverages on board the boat!

    FYI - it is estimated that 1 million+ people will be going to San Francisco that weekend for various events that are happening that weekend (49ers playoffs, giants playoffs, fleet week, america's cup, castro street fair, blue grass festival...) So, everybody be prepared for tons of traffic and very crowded trains.

    Is there night tours?

      The night tour for Alcatraz is cheaper too...$35! This should be one heck of a tour especially nearing you guys want to arrange a meetup for the night tour?

    Sorry if I'm repeating the info. I just ordered tickets - make sure you get the combo tour. Also, the agent I spoke with said it is FLEET WEEK that week so pros: we get to see the Blue Angels flying overhead! but cons: parking will be a nightmare so she recommended public transportation (BART is closer but doesn't start running until 8 am on Sundays.)

    I haven't been there either. Took a bay cruise last year and went by it and said I need to go there one day. I'm in! Should we buy tickets this early?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
