E-Tickets Save Time.
Your E-Tickets provide both ferry service and access to the island and prison, and allow you to bypass the long lines.
Restoration Alert: Portions of the Cellhouse West Wall are temporarily shrouded due to repair and restoration. With the exception of the hospital wing, all areas traditionally open remain open. Look for information signs. There are limited areas on Alcatraz that are always closed, due to their condition. For your safety, please do not enter closed areas. Restoration will be complete in early 2018. Thank you for your understanding and support.
