AL­CA­TRAZ CRUISES

Where San Francisco - - The Guide Sights -

This is the only way to get to “The Rock,” the fa­mous for­mer fed­eral pen­i­ten­tiary that housed some of the na­tion’s most no­to­ri­ous crim­i­nals from 1934-1963. Now one of San Fran­cisco’s most pop­u­lar visi­tor at­trac­tions, fer­ries de­part reg­u­larly for the is­land from Pier 33 start­ing at 8:45 am. The dynamic 45-minute cell­house au­dio tour, of­fered in 11 lan­guages, fea­tures the voices of for­mer Al­ca­traz prison guards and in­mates who re­count es­cape at­tempts, prison ri­ots and soli­tary con­fine­ment. The night tours in­clude a nar­rated boat ride around the is­land. Tours sell out quickly, so be sure to make reser­va­tions in ad­vance. Pier 33, 415.981.7625.
