The Golden Gate & Alcatraz Island Cruise takes you around two of the most iconic San Francisco Bay monuments - a cruise under the universally famed Golden Gate Bridge and past the equally notorious Alcatraz Island.

The cruise takes you around the island and helps you view the island from all angles. The way the island juts out of the sea in an ever-churning San Francisco bay shows exactly why the island earned the name "The Rock".

On your cruise, you will hear chilling tales of Alcatraz escape attempts and unscripted accounts of life on The Rock. Be advised that tour does NOT take place on the island.

If one visits a city which you offer services for, it's awesome and I would definitely recommend.

Well conducted tour and all aspects of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Bay bridge covered adequately. Besides this, the guide gave a background of the historical aspects of San Francisco which were well covered. Makes the experience quite a complete one.
