Alcatraz Island San Francisco

Alcatraz Island is a small island situated in San Francisco Bay, located a mere 2.4 kilometres from the shores of San Francisco. Popular with tourists who are fascinated by its intriguing history, the island (sometimes known by its nickname, “The Rock”) houses what was once a military prison and later a federal prison. Whilst Alcatraz no longer contains criminals, the facility does offer daily tours. Additionally, there is a vast array of native plants and wildlife about the island for tourists to enjoy. The views from Alcatraz Island are not to be discounted either, making it a worthy stop on any visit to the San Francisco area.

  • While waiting for the Alcatraz ferry, enjoy browsing the stores and restaurants along Pier 33, enjoying the freshest seafood in San Francisco, and taking in the amazing views of the cliffs on Alcatraz Island.
  • Walk amongst the flora and fauna of The Rock, whilst enjoying the Gardens of Alcatraz tour, highlighting some of the tidepools and roses decorating the island.
  • Travellers with time to spare may take a ferry to Angel Island, a forested state park with plenty of hiking and biking trails.

Whilst Alcatraz Island is instantly recognizable to anyone visiting the San Francisco Bay area, there is only one way to get access to the island. Alcatraz Cruises are the only tour boats allowed to stop on the island, so be careful not to take tours from another company, as they will simply sail past the island and point it out. Ferries offered by Alcatraz Cruises leave from Pier 33. Tickets can be bought either onsite or in advance. To get to the pier from other areas of San Francisco, hire a taxi or hop onto MUNI’s F line.
