I was intrigued by the various historical information I received that I had never previously heard. The Tram Tour is a must.

This a great day activity for groups or couples. You could have a BBQ there, or go for a sporty hike, to even camping overnight on the island. Many parts are wheelchair friendly.

Did the segway tour with 4 of us. Cole was our guide and he did a great job of teaching us how to safely use the segways and gave a great historical overview of the island. Had lunch after the tour. Great burgers and drinks....More

This was the first stop on the Angel island Alcatraz tour package, the host was very informative as the tram took us on a tour of the island stopping at all the points of interest.

Angel Island is the "Ellis Island" of the West...sad to say, not many people know it's history as a detention facility for immigrants, particularly those coming from Asia. Won't bore you Travelers with a history lesson as the focus of my review is the experience...More

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

Yes. Nice place to camp in or near San Francisco. Check Reserve America punto com, or use search engine to find site. I tried to include URL, but site would not allow it. Hope this helps
