The Night Tour Expands the Alcatraz Experience:
This 3 hour round trip puts you inside America’s most infamous prison.
A guided ferry trip circles the island before docking. From the boat you’ll see hidden spots used for attempted escapes, and prison structures unreachable by foot.
Once on the island, the limited ticketing makes this less crowded than the standard day tour.
For guests unable to make the climb, a tram is available, although it would miss the docent tour.
Your visit will be less crowded than tours at midday, and you’ll be led up the hill to the cellhouse itself, hosted by an experienced docent. You will stop along the way to discover the island’s lesser-known history, from before the U.S. Civil War to family life of the prison staff.
You will go through the cellhouse at your own pace. The award-winning audio headset tour is included – available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
You’ll see solitary confinement cells, and hear dramatic stories from actual prisoners and correctional officers who lived or worked on Alcatraz.
Displays include prison life, guard controls, and how Frank Morris and 2 others made their infamous “Escape From Alcatraz.”
You'll want to stop at the bookstore and walk through the recreation yard.
Special park programs and a history video produced by the Discovery Channel are available during the evening.
There is a permanent exhibit – The Big Lockup: Mass Incarceration in the United States – as well as other rotating exhibits.
Fantastic sunset and twilight views come with the tour... You will take in the San Francisco skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, and panoramas of the San Francisco Bay.
