Alternate Alcatraz explorations—night tours, dungeons, Alumni reunions & the Rock's gardens

Alcatraz Watch Tower with Alcatraz Cruises vessel touring around the "Rock"

Antoinette Sespene with Alcatraz Cruises, a National Park Service concessioner, shares insights about unique tours such as the night tours with a maximum of 30 along with two docents. 

Take a nighttime boat trip around the entire island and descend in to a pitch-black dungeon.

Sespene also offers tips about booking your tickets three months in advance, off the main-track ways to experience the former Federal Penitentiary--and the latest reports of the “Escape From Alcatraz” Anglin Brothers being alive and well in South America.
