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.
Limited tickets makes this less crowded than the standard day tour
Upon docking, 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 history, from before the U.S. Civil War to family life of the prison staff.
For guests unable to make the climb, a tram is available, although it would miss the docent tour.
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.”
