When Alcatraz tours are sold out, this cruise is the best way to see more of the bay and get as close to "The Rock" as possible without docking. This fully narrated, 90 minute cruise sails under the Golden Gate Bridge and showcases the historic "Guardians of the Gate," including Fort Baker, Fort Point, The Presidio and of course Alcatraz - all part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. You'll also see Sausalito, Tiburon, Angel Island State Park and the best views of the San Francisco Skyline. While circling Alcatraz, you'll learn the stories of life on "The Rock" from the inmate, guards and families who actually lived and worked on the island.

On Friday, October 9, 2009, the Blue Angels are tentatively scheduled to practice their aerial acrobatics over San Francisco Bay from 3:00 - 4:00 pm. Alcatraz Cruises cannot guarantee this practice session will take place during the 3:30 pm Guardians of the Gate Bay Cruise.
