Providing An Amazing Group Experience
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 15 people or more.

Please Note: Groups must include one adult leader (over 21 years of age) for every seven youths below the age of 18. Youths must be accompanied by an adult chaperone at all times.
The Night Tour is limited in the number of guests who can take the tour each evening.
