Will I get a discount if I book a second tour?
Are there any advantages by booking my tour online?
Can I combine two or more discount codes?
At this time only one discount code can be accepted per reservation. You must choose which one you would like to apply upon making your booking. There is a space for the discount code or “tracking code” on the final page of the booking form.
My discount code isn’t working!
Not every code will be applicable to every single reservation. Please read the terms of the discount code you are attempting to use carefully, and note that some codes provided by third parties may have expired. If the code is valid and has been correctly applied you will see the value reflected on the final checkout page before submitting your reservation.
I’ve already made a reservation but forgot to add the discount code. Can you refund me the discount?
Unfortunately, any discount code you would like to use must be applied at the time of your booking. The code must be redeemed at the time of reservation and cannot be applied after you have made the booking.
Can I cancel or change my reservation?
Full refunds will be given for cancellations to any 1-day and half-day tour reservations made more than 24 hours before the scheduled departure time. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will not be entitled to any refunds.
Tours with hotel packages and other third-party attractions tickets (ie. Monterey aquarium tickets) cancelled or changed with more than 10 days notice prior to departure, will incur a $35.00 fee or a fee of 10% of the package cost, whichever is greater.
Cancellations of any Tour package or 3rd party attraction ticket with less than 10 days notice will not be entitled to any refunds. Airport shuttles, Bay Cruises and Alcatraz tickets are nonrefundable.
Where do I pick up the tickets for my tour?
You do not need to have a physical voucher to board Extranomical-operated tours. Please follow the instructions on your confirmation for any 3rd-party-operated tours such as Bay City Bikes, Blue & Gold Fleet, Airport Express, et al. If you have purchased the Ferry Bay Cruise tickets, your Expedition Leader will give these to you upon boarding your tour.
Please note that Alcatraz Cruises will require that each adult boarding the boat to Alcatraz bring their photo ID or passport for identity verification.
Morning: Escape from the Rock Cruise
Escape from the Rock is the perfect alternative to the Alcatraz ferry cruise. Enjoy 360-degree views of Alcatraz Island as you circle around the island twice. Learn about this prison without stepping foot on the island and hear astonishing tales of escape attempts. Hear about the brutal life and the unscripted accounts of life on "the Rock." After departing from Pier 39, your 90 minute cruise consists of sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge, passing by Treasure Island, and Sausalito. Discover what life was like in this maximum-security prison on the Escape from the Rock cruise.
Afternoon: Muir Woods & Sausalito PM Tour
Our 4-hour Muir Woods & Sausalito PM Tour from San Francisco gives you about an hour to enjoy the tallest Coastal Redwood Sequoia trees in Muir Woods National Monument. You'll have the chance to take a walk or just enjoy nature as you take in the beautiful scenery and the fresh air. Stop in the quaint seaside town of Sausalito (optional) for some shopping at boutique shops and art galleries and perhaps pick up a souvenir. You can also choose to take an optional ferry back to Fisherman's Wharf or the Ferry Building in San Francisco (fees apply). This combination of Muir Woods and Escape from the Rock will create a lasting memory on your San Francisco trip.
