Subject: Alcatraz Tours
Hi Paolo, This link will take you to the Blue and White fleet's Alcatraz tours, where you can buy tickets online. Yes, the tickets do sell out in advance but I know you can sometimes walk up to the booth (Fisherman's Wharf area) to buy single tickets on the day of departure. I've also heard that the Alcatraz After Dark tours are way cool.

The National Park Service's site,, also refers you to the Blue and Gold fleet, and has some additional information.

I haven't taken the tour in years (who tours the city where you live?) but I remember it was really fun.
