My family and I had a wonderful time on Angel Island. We decided to try something new and take the guided segway tour around the entire island. It is a little bit pricey, but definitely worth the experience. Our tour guide Rick was great. Will recommend to friends and family.

We visited angel island for the fist time after visiting SF many times. We found the ferry ride over with its views of the city, golden gate and bay bridges added bonuses. The island is a quiet respite from the chaos of pier 39. We rented bikes and toured the perimeter of the island. It took us about an hour+... More

Glad we visited Angel Island and to learn more about the Island's long military and immigration history. This tour was tied to a tram tour around the entire island so hiking and biking was not something we could do. They do have a cafe with good food which was really nice because this was quite a long day. Great views... More

Gorgeous views that you can't get anywhere else. There is a cafe so you don't even have to bring a picnic, although it is fun if you do. There are plenty of picnic tables and good bathroom facilities. The bike ride was a bit more challenging than we expected, for some of our group. The young/fit will love it, the... More

We did the Angel Island combined Alcatraz combo. We enjoyed Angel island more than we thought we would. The staff was friendly. The cafe was quick, reasonable and delicious. The views are amazing. Bring your camera.

Ferry to the great outdoors. Just a quick ride for a great city getaway. This Island has it all, hiking, history, camping and fantastic views of the bay. We did the tram tour of the island, snack at the dock then lunch back at fishermans wharf. Bring good walking shoes,sunscreen and a jacket.

We rented bikes at the wharf then took them on the ferry to Angel Island. The ferry ride was nice. We rode the bikes the 5 miles around the island on the perimeter road. It was very steep getting up to the road but once there the road was ok except for one spot we had to walk up the... More

This Island is reached by ferry (inexpensive) so you get a nice boat ride. There are trails for hiking or biking with bike rentals available on the island. There is a lot of history .From 1910 to 1940, the island processed hundreds of thousands of immigrants, the majority from China. During World War II, Japanese, and German POWs were held... More

Angel Island is a little gem that I only discovered on my 4th visit to San Francisco. There weren't many tourists on the ferry, mostly kids going to camp and young adults looking for Pokemons. And it was quite cheap, 8 or 9 dollars per person. We took the first ferry from Pier 41, it travelled quickly, and on the... More

Hiking swimming, biking, boating, camping, picnicking all with a hefty interesting dose of history. United States Immigration Station museum, cafe (seasonal), ferry from Tiburon. I boated in and took our raft to the island. Bring your own bike or rent one there.

Thank sifuerst
