Alcatraz Island at Sunset

** UPDATE: Date has changed to November 9th. **


Travel with us to Alcatraz Island, learn about it's exciting future, and get an insider's look into the history of former maximum-security prison. We'll sail off from Pier 33 on the 3:50pm boat, and once we disembark we will be treated to a special walking tour ending at the Cellhouse where we will have the option of going on the award-winning audio tour or joining Alcatraz Island staff on a behind-the-scenes tour of areas of the park not usually open to the public, such as the A Block and the Citadel. We'll then have time to enjoy many of the other programs and exhibits that Alcatraz Island has to offer before leaving for the mainland at 6:45pm.

This event is NOT complimentary, however we ARE offering a special discount on the ferry ticket price. Member GA tickets for this event cost $42.25, for a savings of over $22 from the regular Alcatraz Night Tour price.
