Customize Your Fun
Hosting events can be fun, but when they are located on Alcatraz, events are memorable. Whether you are hosting a corporate event, fundraiser, or a private birthday party, the Island’s history and charm offers a unique space with a killer view!

Private events can be scheduled on Sunday and Monday evenings. For Tuesdays through Saturdays, groups can “buy out the night” for large groups. We offer full-event service and logistics planning is provided to ensure a seamless process.

Each scheduled evening event includes:

  • Round-trip private ferry charter from Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing to Alcatraz Island.
  • Private tour of Alcatraz Island.
    • Private, ranger-led tours for groups up to 150 people.
    • Private, ranger-led tours followed by self-guided award-winning audio tour for groups over 150 people.
    • Logistics support, ranging from barge load-in/out, to site visits, negotiations with various partners (such as caterers, entertainers, and National Park Service) for the best solution for your needs.

There are multiple venues on the Island to choose from, each with their own unique feel and personality.

  • Dining Hall – Dinner/reception for up to 300 people.
