Alcatraz & Day Tours

Explore Alcatraz!

These packages combine a Bay City Bike Guided tour with a visit of the infamous Alcatraz prison. Once home to some of America’s most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique to the Rock. To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world’s most legendary prisons. Packages include a boat ride to the island, tickets to the park and an audio headset for a fascinating, factual self-guided tour through the prison. Experience Alcatraz and a bike tour the same day, or spread it over two.
