    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Alcatraz Island, Pier 33, San Francisco, CA 94133

    Once home to some of America’s most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique to the Rock. The presence of infamous inmates like Al “Scarface” Capone, and the “Birdman” Robert Stroud helped to establish the island’s notoriety. To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world’s most legendary prisons.

    NOTE: Your exact Alcatraz departure time will be confirmed 5 days prior to your tour date.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: San Francisco Bay, San Francisco, CA

    Join an exhilarating bay cruise and take in the beauty of San Francisco right from the water. Enjoy views of Alcatraz Island, the city skyline, the Golden Gate bridge and the Pacific Ocean.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
