 'Welcome to 'the Rock'! I'm Ian Craig, alcatraztherock.com publisher, National Park Service Certified Program Guide, Alcatraz Historian, and Media Producer. And, welcome to our newly revamped, and ever-evolving, destination web portal. Alcatraz Island is currently re-opened on a limited basis, and tours are limited to outside areas. No entry to Prison Building, Shops, etc. So, we've endeavored to create Virtual Tours for you to explore this historical island, to assist in planning a visit, and to share the unique opportunity to meet, through our vast video interview collection - 14 former prisoners, former guards, prison minister, and family members who grew up on the island! Stay Tuned!
