Is there a shuttle bus that will take us to the meeting place?

Erin: There is no official meeting place other than the dock at Pier 33. If you would like to meet up to take the light rail to Pier 33, a group of ANSS members plan to meet in the lobby of the Marriott Marquis at 10:30am. This should give us plenty of time to get to the pier, and if there are enough of us that we need to hop on multiple light rails. The Marriott Marquis is an ALA co-headquarters hotel located at 780 Market St. It is in walking distance of the Moscone Center.

I don't see an option for an 11:30 tour on Friday June 26. Do they just remove the time from the schedule once it's sold out? Sorry I won't be able to join you.

Catherine: Yes, the 11:30 boat is sold out. You can book the 11:00 or Noon boats (if space is still available) and still meet up with people at Alcatraz. This is not a led tour. You can visit Alcatrz as long as you like and take a boat back on your own schedule. Alcatraz Cruises recommends 2.5 hours.
