This is a nice afternoon trip out of the city. I wouldn't put it as number 1 on my list, but it certainly has some great views of the bay area and the tram tour and very information about the island.

So while in "the Bay Area" we knew that we had to see Alcatraz before we left. We were unable to get tickets without purchasing a combination package to Angel Island also. On the way to Angel Island we circled around Alcatraz Island which those who did the island tour only didn't get to experience. The Captain gave a historical... More

Angel Island is a State Park, former military reservation and former Immigration station in San Francisco Bay north of the city and east of Marin County. You can get to it by ferry from San Francisco (Blue and Gold Line $18 round trip) or from the town of Tiburon which has its own Ferry (Tiburon Line $15 round trip). Check... More

Took this tour as a package with Alcatraz and am glad we did. Lots of history here and with the tram doing the driving it's pretty relaxed too. Great views and the driver will stop at various places to let you get off and take pictures. Took our own lunch which we could enjoy in the picnic area. The cafe... More

Beyond the historical significance of this Ellis Is. of the Pacific, it just a nice setting to watch the bay go by. Take the tram to get good background and stop at the best photo op settings.

This island has lots to offer; hiking, bicycling, picnicking, great views of the Bay and a wonderful museum. Food and music on the weekends, in Ayala Cove. Take the ferry from Tiburon.

I went as part of the combo Alcatraz/Angel Island tour. The package came with a shuttle tour that described the Island's history, uses, etc. I was fortunate enough to also go on a gorgeous day...amazing views of San Francisco. If you have time, I highly recommend a trip to see the Island, especially if you enjoy hiking or camping. There... More

You will have some of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz from Angel Island. A lot of history surrounds the island.
