Gate Prices Adult $19.50

What do Coastal Miwok Indians, immigrants from Asia and Spanish explorers have in common? They're all part of this scenic isle's colorful history. Don't miss your chance to explore the "Ellis Island of the West" via bicycle, Segway, tram or kayak.

The San Francisco Bay Area is arguably most beautiful when viewed from the water, with a view of that world-famous icon, the Golden Gate Bridge on the horizon. Blue & Gold Fleet offers you a scenic ferry ride to Angel Island, one of the finest historic sites in the San Francisco Bay Area, allowing you to visit the military garrisons and compounds that played a prominent role in historical events dating back to the Civil War. Angel Island is known as the “Ellis Island of the West”, as it was the first stop for millions of immigrants entering the United States via the Pacific. The Blue & Gold ferry departs from Pier 41, taking you on a thrilling cruise of one of the most interesting attractions in the area.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, immigrants entered the United States from as far away as Russia, and as many as 1 million Asian immigrants passed through Angel Island between 1910 and 1940. This immigration port is just as fascinating as Ellis Island, giving you a glimpse into the lives of the immigrants who entered the country from the other side of the world but are often eclipsed by the history of European immigrants who came via the Atlantic. A visitor’s center sits in the island’s Ayala Cove area, and seasonal services (not included in ferry ticket) on Angel Island are available through the official park concessionaire, Angel Island Company, including reasonably priced mountain bike rentals, kayak tours led by a naturalist, hour-long, audio enhanced tram tours of the island’s historic sites, and meals at the Cove Café, which features an affordable menu with varied options. Professionally-guided Segway tours are available in 45-minute or 2-hour increments. Please note that no pets are allowed on the island, with the exception of service animals.

After disembarking the Blue & Gold ferry, visitors can visit the Angel Island Detention Barracks (guided tour option only) and walk through the scenic public areas and the newly-renovated Immigration Station, which is open to the public during park hours (8AM-sunset). Park access is included with your round trip ferry ticket.

Angel Island is a National Historic Landmark, and offers amazing views of the San Francisco skyline, as well as the Marin County Headlands and Mount Tamalpais. Take this opportunity, courtesy of the Blue & Gold Fleet, to learn about one of America’s most important immigration hubs, and the history of an island that has been a critical military stronghold in times of conflict.
