Due to local directives related to COVID-19, Evening, Behind the Scenes and Alcatraz & Angel Island Combination Tours have temporarily been suspended. Until further notice, access to indoor areas on the Island is restricted, including the main Cellhouse.

The safety of visitors and crew is Alcatraz Cruises’ top priority and the company has enacted  SafeCruise precautions to help support these efforts. All visitors and crew are now required to pass through a Safe Entry Station where security will conduct a screening, including temperature checks. Face coverings are also required throughout the experience.
