If you’re a summer soul, book your tickets for September and October, which promises warmer weather and sunshine even in the cool cell blocks. For those who don’t mind braving the cold, wind and fog though, head to Alcatraz during the city’s rainy season (in the months of January and February) for a cheaper trip away from the crowds.
The only way to get here is of course by ferry. Due to popular demand, ferries between San Francisco and Alcatraz run thick and fast no matter the weather, so you won’t struggle to make it to the island.
Book your tickets as part of a combination package and you’ll save some serious cash. While tours are rarely discounted individually, pairing up your San Francisco sightseeing tours with a visit to Alcatraz promises a good discount. Have a snoop around this page for all the combo tour details!
Make sure to have comfortable walking shoes since you'll be traversing the island by foot. Additionally, consider bringing layered clothing as the island's weather can change unexpectedly. Don't leave behind your camera, water, or any personal essentials you may require.
