Subject: Re: Alcatraz Tours

I believe the Red &White Ferry was bought out by the Blue &Gold a couple years ago. Both still run, but under the same hat.

The trip to Alcatraz is wonderful along with the views of San Francisco.

One recommendation and I'm hoping the San Francisco area folks can help me out here.

If time permits, I highly recommend the cable car ride. I can't remember where we got on, but the trip ends just east (I think -- I tend to have absolutely no sense of direction) of the pier where you get on the ferry to go to Alcatraz. The views of Alcatraz from the cable car are breathtaking -- the one you see on the ad on TV. It's even prettier in person!
