Limit 8 guests
Place: You will depart from Pier 33
Time: 8:20 am and return by 1:00 pm. Lunch will be provided.
Board the boat with the rest of the Alcatraz staff and head for the island! The award-winning Gardens of Alcatraz illustrate the importance of gardens to the human spirit as well as the ecological benefits and aesthetic possibilities of sustainable gardening. Enjoy a peaceful 10-minute ferry ride to the island with the staff, separate from the tourist crowds. You and seven companions, accompanied by RBG Staff, will get an insider’s look and an in-depth tour from Garden Manager Shelagh Fritz. You can opt to take the audio tour of the prison cells before enjoying a gourmet picnic lunch on the dock. May is the time to visit for peak blooms and excellent bird watching.
