Group Tickets

Your Next Group's Adventure Awaits

I am a travel agent. How can I book and print e-Tickets for my clients?

Travel Companies and Tour Operators wishing to book Alcatraz Island tour tickets as part of a package on behalf of clients, please fill out a group application request. Applications are subject to approval, and once approved, you may begin packaging Alcatraz tickets with your tour itineraries. Until then, guests can still purchase tickets by going to our website, or by calling our Central Reservations Office at +1.415.981.7625.

Can groups go on Night Tours?

The National Park Service allows one group on each Night Tour departure. The group can range in size up to a maximum of 60 people. Groups on the Night Tour are approved on a first come, first served basis. There are no special arrangements or private tours available for groups on the Night Tour.

What constitutes a group?

Parties of 15 people or more are considered to be groups.  Any group must fill out a group application request, based on their group type.  Groups can book no more than 60 people on any one departure.

What is the chaperone policy for youth groups?

Youth groups must have one adult (21 years or older) for every seven youths (18 years or younger).  Persons between the ages of 18 and 20 cannot be considered chaperones for youth groups.  Youth groups must arrive at Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing with the correct ratio of chaperones to children.  Alcatraz Cruises does not allow youth groups to bring chaperones who do not know the children in the group.  Youths must be accompanied by an adult chaperone at all times while on the island. Chaperone guidelines are strictly enforced by Alcatraz Cruises and the National Park Service.  Youth groups arriving at Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing without the proper number of chaperones will not be allowed on Alcatraz Island.  Please contact the Group Services Department at Alcatraz Cruises at [email protected] or 415.438.8361 to receive complete information on youth groups and chaperons.

I want to take a group on a specially guided tour of the island. How do I arrange that?

Independently guided tours are NOT allowed on Alcatraz Island. Only NPS tours are permitted. Groups are invited to participate in the Cellhouse audio tour, as well as the regularly scheduled park programs offered on the island. Organizations ignoring this rule will be escorted from the island.
