Once you have explored the city on foot, jump aboard a boat and cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge, past Treasure Island and Angel Island to the notorious island of Alcatraz. Nicknamed “The Rock”, for thirty years Alcatraz housed the most dangerous criminals in the United States. Given its isolation and the cold waters surrounding its shores, the prison was considered unescapable. However, over the years a few prisoners made daring attempts and you will learn the mysterious stories surrounding their legend.
