Explore Alcatraz Island
Make your own way to Pier 33 for the 15-minute ferry to the island. Once on the island, you can stay as long as you like, but please allow 3 hours to enjoy the Cellhouse Audio Tour, view the exhibit, and explore the Island. You will be able to explore the windswept island and learn about its layered history through outdoor interpretive signs, a Discovery Guide island map, and exhibits. Rangers will be stationed around the island to assist visitors and answer questions. Once you've had a chance to explore, take a ferry back to San Francisco.
Note: The weather on Alcatraz is unpredictable so dress in layers and wear closed toe shoes.
