Description

Get an up-close look at the foreboding island penitentiary of Alcatraz from the waters of the San Francisco Bay. See the borders of this fearsome former prison from every angle and listen to engaging audio commentary about the island’s infamous inmates as you cruise around its formidable shores.

Step aboard a comfortable sightseeing boat at Fisherman’s Wharf and set off across the waves of the bay. Take in views of the city skyline and waterfront of the Marina District as you approach the iconic span of the Golden Gate Bridge, and snap a photo from the deck as you pass directly underneath it.

Connect to engaging audio-commentary on your smartphone or tablet, and turn your gaze toward Alcatraz’s rocky shores as the boat loops back through the bay toward this ominous outpost. Study the prison’s grounds, fences, and cell block buildings from the water, listening to stories about escape attempts by notorious former prisoners like Al Capone, Clyde Johnson, and Billy Cook the Killer before heading back to shore.
