“A great place to sail to”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

I visiting Angel Island who took a sail boat there. While a bit chilly on the bay--the sun warmed island was a welcomed relief. I enjoyed this place being very far from the city (at least that is how it felt) and yet very easy to get to. I also enjoyed barbecuing here.

“Love It”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

I've been to Angel Island 2 times, once by myself and once with a friend and both times were great! Sometimes they have tour groups there and you can listen in on the history of the island.

“Segway Tour - Awesome experience!”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

My husband and I took the Segway tour offered by Angel Island Company. It was the most fun I've had in a long time! They teach you the fundamentals of riding the segway, and then you're off for a tour of the island. Its about an hour and a half long "drive" with stops along the way for the guide to explain the history of the island. Honestly, I don't remember much of what she said because riding was so silly and fun all at the same time. I'm pretty sure everyone had smiles plastered on their faces the entire tour. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys being outdoors and likes trying new things. It was an awesome experience!

“Historic and beautiful”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Angel Island is a gem in the Bay. It is best seen by bike, which can be taken on the ferry. This is the 'Ellis Island' of the west - be sure to learn about the interesting history of the island.

“Bring a picnic, walking shoes or bike and enjoy”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

History breathes on the backside of Angel with the buildings resonating a story you have to sit, be quiet and listen to as the waves wash over you.
