Do you like the Black Friday long waiting lines?

You will find the same with Alcatraz tickets – crowds show up early and form a big line hoping for the best. However, there will be very few tickets available, particularly during the peak season and the waiting line in front of the Alcatraz booth at Pier 33 in San Francisco starts as early as 5 am. Since San Francisco is cold, even in the summer, be sure to dress properly for these foggy, cold and windy conditions and the long wait. On the other hand, why not rather book a tour of Alcatraz and San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Napa, or Muir Woods to enjoy more of your visit and have it all arranged for you.

 Why buy Alcatraz tickets in Advance?

Advance reservation for Alcatraz Island and prison tickets, is highly recommended because there are more than one million people each year who want to visit Alcatraz Island. Visitors are intrigued by seeing the prisoners’ cells, listening to the dramatic stories behind the scenes and learn about Alcatraz jail’s mysterious history, like the famous escape from Alcatraz.  However, due to the limited number of visitors allowed on the Island each day, Alcatraz Island tour tickets can sell out several weeks in advance and some tours, such as Alcatraz Island Night Tour and the “Behind-the-Scenes Tour”, have very limited availability and are extremely hard to get.


Good Luck
