Groups are welcome to visit Alcatraz Island throughout the year. However, due to safety concerns and size limitations, groups must make special arrangements for their ticket reservations. “Groups” are defined as 20 people or more.
There is a limited number of visitors who can take the Night Tour each evening. For group reservations on our Night Tours please contact the Group Services Department directly to request an information form. You may call 855.964.2282 seven days a week between the hours of 8AM to 5PM PST or e-mail us at [email protected].
Independently guided tours are NOT allowed on Alcatraz Island. Only National Park Service tours are permitted on the Island. However, groups are invited to participate in the Cellhouse audio tour and the regularly scheduled park programs offered on the Island.
The ability to make group reservations requires completing an application. Allow up to 30 days for review. If approved, you will be authorized to make group reservations.
