Alcatraz Island (tHE roCK)
Leave from the Crissy Field, circumnavigate Alcatraz Island clockwise and return to Crissy Field, a distance of approximately 4 nautical miles and a travel time of 2 hours. Please note that this area has high winds and strong currents so travel times may be longer and difficulty may be high.
Slack tide will be at about noon, which means the most conducive time from a tidal standpoint to circumnavigate the island is midday. However, winds heighten throughout the day on San Francisco Bay, so we will likely complete this leg of the journey in the early morning.
