Cruise on San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island and the infamous and notorious former federal prison. This former federal prison housed some of America’s most difficult and dangerous felons during its years of operation from 1934 to 1963.

The prison was shut down due to high operating costs in 1963. Today, historic Alcatraz Island is a popular tourist attraction and destination that visitors from around the world come and visit. The tour includes round trip ferry transfers from Pier 33 to Alcatraz Island, a brief welcome and orientation from a National Park Ranger and an audio Cell Block Tour.
