Bus will take the group to the world-famous PIER 39 to explore a variety of attractions exclusive to The PIER. Sail the Bay aboard one of PIER 39’s many water attractions, then discover 20,000 local sea creatures at Aquarium of the Bay. You can also enjoy free daily shows by local street performers at the Carousel Stage, as well as musicians in the PIER 39 Entrance Plaza. Lunch will be on your own with a verity of eating venues to choose from. We will meet at 2:30 for the Alcatraz Island tour. It offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and US built fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the history making 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes. Rich in history, there is also a natural side to the Rock—gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and bay views beyond compare.
