One of the most iconic landmarks of San Francisco remains to be Alcatraz, the prison island in the bay. The Escape from the Rock Boat tour is your best alternative when Alcatraz tours sell out. Your voucher allows 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 sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll circle Alcatraz Island and see every angle of this mysterious island. With sound effects and stories about famous inmates like Al Capone, Billy Cook the Killer, and Clyde Johnson’s famous escape attempt, you’ll have a clear picture of what life in this maximum-security prison was like. You will understand why Alcatraz was the most feared institution in the American penal system. Hear chilling tales of escape attempts and unscripted accounts of life on the rock. As a special bonus, 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.
