OTHER INFO:

  • You can stay on Alcatraz Island as long as you like, but allow at least three (3) hours to cruise to the Island, take the Cellhouse audio tour, explore the rest of the Island and its historic exhibits, and return via ferry to Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing. It is recommended that you arrive at least one half hour prior to your departure time.

  • Please note: The roads and walkways on Alcatraz are steep. The distance from the dock to the Cellhouse is approximately 1/4 mile (.4km) and the elevation change is 130 feet (40 meters), the equivalent of walking up a 13-story building. The roads and walkways are wide with several places to stop along the way to rest and take in the breathtaking views. Comfortable athletic or walking shoes are strongly recommended.
