About this experience
See one of the most iconic landmarks in San Francisco: Alcatraz, the prison island in the bay. The Escape from the Rock Boat tour is the best way to admire this legendary place!
This voucher enables you to choose the departure time that best fits your schedule. Leaving from Pier 39 you will sail past the sea lions into the bay. After you pass under the Golden Gate Bridge, you will circle Alcatraz Island and admire every angle of this enigmatic island.
With sound effects and anecdotes about prominent inmates like Billy Cook the Killer, Al Capone, and about the Clyde Johnson’s famous escape attempt, you will get a clear picture of what life in this maximum-security prison was like.
Thanks to this tour you will fully understand the reasons why Alcatraz was considered the most feared institution in the American penal system.
As a special gift, every child ticket purchased (ages 5-11) will receive one complimentary pair of 5x magnification Blue & Gold Fleet souvenir binoculars to make this extraordinary tour even more memorable.
This tour is your Alcatraz alternative and does not land on the island.
