Tram Tours

*Our most popular tour. Recommended for first time visitors of Angel Island.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the amazing views offered by the open air tram tour. While you ride around the island, a history rich audio recording offers fascinating historical and current day information about various sites on Angel Island. The Angel Island tram stops at Battery Ledyard, one of the best photo opportunities in the bay area. The backdrop is the entire skyline of San Francisco, Alcatraz, and The Golden Gate Bridge.

Our fleet of open-air trams have a maximum seating capacity of 50 guests. We also have an accessible tram, but please email us prior to your arrival if you need special arrangements at Our tram tour guides are known for their humor and customer service. Click here to book your Tram Tour now!

You cannot make reservations with a Groupon certificate. Please come to the Angel Island Café and present your Groupon voucher (on your phone is fine) and we will give you a tram ticket. To guarantee a seat it is best to take the first ferry to the island.
Yes, but you are not guaranteed a seat once you get off. If you do decide to get off the tram, please let the driver know when boarding and retain you ticket.
Only if there is room. If the tram is sold out you can leave the stroller behind the fence at the tram boarding area.
Most definitely! It’s fun and educational.
It stops briefly at the entrance but it does not go down into the station. If you choose to get off the tram at the USIS you can catch a shuttle back to the cove (they depart at 12:45 and 3:00 with pick ups at the bathroom) or you can walk back to the cove, which is less than a mile downhill 🙂
