ALARMING IMPORTANT NOTE
BOOK Your Alcatraz Ticket BEFORE you book your flight!
This is no joke, you have to get your Alcatraz Tickets and Tour combos at least 14-21 days in advance. Alcatraz tickets (from anywhere) can only be sold as part of a Tour Combo (restricted by Parks Service). There is also a strict limit per day that can go to Alcatraz for crowd control purposes and that limit is 3,000 people/day – that is all that can go to Alcatraz each day. With over 200,000 daily visitors (June, July and August) trying to get one of 3,000 tickets it becomes impossible — Book Early, Book Now!
With years of experience, please accept our trustworthy tip and get your Alcatraz tour combos now! We see the mistake of others at least 20 times per day and we see how it ruins their San Francisco experience. The rule of San Francisco travel is book your Alcatraz Tour Combo first THEN book your flight to San Francisco.
