Only a $10 ferry ride from Pier 41, Angel Island is an unspoilt paradise. Amazing walks, especially the 2 hour hike to 700ft Mt. Livermore. Incredible views of the San Francisco Bay.

We had this trip included with Alcatraz, expensive. interesting history but not much to do other than the 1 hour trolly tour. Takes a few hours out of your day. Very peaceful though.

Pier 41. I am not sure about Oakland but I think you need to purchase a ticket to Angel island at Pier 41.
