They have an awesome tour of the island by tram that is very informative. They also do a Segway tour, which I have not done yet. I love to come here to hike and explore. Picnic lunch is a must.

Quick 1 hour train tram tour explained the history of the island. The café offered delicious food, but it is pricy.

They call this "The Ellis Island of the West". We saw Angel Island on our combined tour with Alcatraz. I am so glad we did! Beautiful views from the island, and really informative tour guides.

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