Remember, Alcatraz Cruises is the Official Concessionaire and the only transportation provider for trips to Alcatraz Island. To get on the Island, you must have an Alcatraz Cruises ticket. DiscoverTown Tours is an Authorized Reseller of Alcatraz Cruises.
Once on the island, a National Park Service Ranger Orientation and other options are included. Return departures leave roughly every 30 minutes. You can stay as long as you like. You control the clock. Walk slowly or walk fast. Stop the audio and chat. Check out the Discovery Channel produced history video in the old civil war era buildings close to the dock. Peruse the two bookstores, walk the perimeter trail, or discover the history on the American Indian occupation. You can even go out in the prison recreation yard and put yourself back in time, imagining gangsters and criminals in the damp wet fog. And be sure to soak up the San Francisco Bay views – like the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Skyline, Angel Island, and more. Typically, most visitors take 3 hours round trip for Alcatraz, but you can make your stay shorter or longer.
DiscoverTown Tours resells the Alcatraz Day Tour Ticket in combination with other tours. Simply choose from the above options to make a tour package. From inside each package page, you’ll be able to choose your Alcatraz departure date. Other tours can be done on different days – before or after Alcatraz – or on the same day as your Alcatraz tour if time permits.
