Escape from the Rock
A $36.00 value, FREE with your Go San Francisco Card!
Experience Blue and Gold Fleet’s Escape from the Rock Cruise! It’s a 90-minute bay cruise journey that sails under the Golden Gate Bridge and then circles Alcatraz allowing you to see every angle of this mysterious island. You’ll hear chilling accounts of harrowing escape attempts by Alca- traz’s notorious criminals as well as their descriptions of the brutality of life on the island. This special San Francisco bay tour, “fully-loaded” with sound effects and intriguing stories about Capone, Billy Cook the Killer, Clyde Johnson’s escape attempt and many more, will take you back to the days when this maximum-security prison was the most feared institution in the American penal system.
