"Alcatraz Cruises" San Francisco Transportation Tip by VeronicaG
San Francisco Transportation: 624 reviews and 790 photos
We booked our cruise to Alcatraz online since we were informed that these tours fill up very quickly.
Our guidebook recommended purchasing tickets ahead, but the earliest they can be reserved is 30 days before your trip.
There were several tour options; we chose a tour that took us to the cellhouse and grounds. (Cost $21.75 per adult and $13.75 for a child)
We selected an early morning tour which departed at 9:30 am, but there was an early bird tour at 9am and further departures throughout the day. As warned, the cruises sold out early so we were very glad that we had prepaid tickets.
We boarded at Pier 33 and were instructed to appear between 9 am-9:20 am, but when we arrived a long line had already formed. As we inched forward at departure time, a photographer snapped our picture.
Please note: there is NO parking at Pier 33.
