Alcatraz City Cruises: Alcatraz & Angel Island Combination Tour (June 1-Sept. 2)

Alcatraz City Cruises brings back the combination tour to both Alcatraz Island and the newly reopened Angel Island!

Alcatraz Island is regarded as one of the most sought-after attractions of San Francisco, featuring an award-winning cellhouse audio tour that takes you through the prison that once housed some of America’s most notorious criminals.

Known as the “Ellis Island of the West,” Angel Island was a major immigration hub for people arriving from over 84 different nations between 1910 and the 1940s. Today, it functions as a State Park, offering guests the breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay while learning about the island’s historical significance.

Cellhouse Audio Tour Included

Tour the Cellhouse at your own pace with the award-winning audio presentation “Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour”. Stop to picture yourself in a dark solitary confinement cell, hear the stories of life inside from former inmates, and feel the intensity of a prison breakout from correctional officers who lived and worked on the Island.

No one can tell the Alcatraz tale quite like the men who lived it. Hear both sides of life in the Island prison including such famous events as escape attempts, “The Battle of ’46”, “Food Riots”, and “Surviving Solitary Confinement”.

The Cellhouse audio tour is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
