Foursquare Tips

  • Take the night Tour! Way more interesting!
  • Alcatraz tickets sell out 2-3 weeks in advance in the summer time. Make sure to book at least a month ahead to avoid disappointment at the ticket window.
  • If taking the ferry to @Alcatrazisland, buy your tickets in advance!
  • There's no food or drinks available for purchase on Alcatraz. You can get snacks at Pier 33 Cafe or the snack bar on the boat. Besides bottled water, food/drinks are only allowed at the Alcatraz dock.
  • They just do not scan the Tickets. So you can buy one online, print it, cancel it and have a ride for free!
  • Great! You're gonna love it!
  • A limited number of presale tickets are available. The ticket office opens at 8am to sell day of tickets. Get there by 6:30am to have a 99% chance of getting tix or 7:15 if you can deal w/ risk.
  • Swimming with the porpoises doing flips n shit.
  • Compra las entradas por Internet
  • Order your tickets online to skip the lines..
