    First of all, it's better to buy tickets online three days in advance. You can choose the time and date of the boat ride. Old people and children have preferential prices. After payment is successful, the order will be sent to the mailbox. An hour in advance on the day of the trip, you can change your ticket at the window with the electronic order sent to you. If you buy the ticket on the spot, you may not be able to buy it. Then you can board the ship half an hour in advance. When you get off the island, don't rush. There is a time sign on the dock for the return boat. There is a Chinese guide map in the pavilion. You can buy it by yourself for $1. Then you can follow the road map. The focus of the tour is the largest prison on the island. You can choose Chinese headphones when you enter the shower room. When you go upstairs and play them at the beginning of the prison, you can hear that the whole prison is an explanation. You can follow the explanation and visit the prison. The explanation includes the history of the prison, the Humanities and many real escape stories. It is quite legendary and worth savoring. Also, don't miss the flavor of the island. Scene, you can see the whole city of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, and you can also experience the real scenes in the movie "Brave for Damage Island".

    In fact, Devil Island used to be a prison, but now it has become a tourist attraction. The main experience is to take a headphone guide (with Mandarin Chinese) and follow the voice prompt to visit the whole prison. It's like listening to a radio play and experiencing the prison story and escaping from prison in a real situation. It's a great experience. In addition, the island can also see the Golden Gate Bridge, and is a good photo shooting site. In addition, you can feel San Francisco Bay.

    This visit to Devil Island actually requires an appointment. I don't think there are many people going to this place. The island's prison facilities remain intact, even the bullet marks left by the riots in the prison are clearly visible. From the island, you can see the city of San Francisco. It is said that at night, you can clearly hear the music and noise coming from the city of San Francisco. It can be seen that the prisoners here suffered a lot. A small island less than two miles from San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf is actually a huge 22-acre reef. Its English name, Alcatraz Island, means Pelican Island, because the prison on the island once held a prisoner named Philip Grosser, who wrote a book describing his experience in the iron window "Uncle Sam &_39; s Devil & Magic Island.

    Devil Island - an island in the sea that needs to be crossed by Cruise boat. It used to be a prison for prisoners. Nowadays, the reason why it is famous is that many movies have been filmed here. Its pictures often appear in some works, such as - "film "escape from Devil Island", "brave invasion of Destruction Island" and so on. At present, the prison has been closed, and the island is for tourists to visit.

    The Devil Island, across the sea from San Francisco, was a national prison in the United States before the 1960s. It specializes in detaining key criminals, ranging from gangsters to murderous fanatics. Humorous old people who receive voice explanations say that for the first time in their life, they should go to prison and have a good time. This prison seems very humane, well-fed and has its own hobbies, but the life of losing freedom makes people want to escape except to die. Successful prison break only once. Use a spoon to cut a big hole in the vent of the room bit by bit, and then climb out, like a movie.

    The island was once the most famous prison in the United States. It is known as the first prison in the United States. No prisoner ever escaped from it. Now it is a national park. The prison facilities on the island are well preserved. The waters of the Pacific Ocean around the island are extremely cold, and down jackets can be worn on the island.

    Tickets bought online, printed out by oneself, go on board the ship with tickets for 38 old people (62 or more) for 35.75 dollars. Tickets are best bought in advance. They are nervous. After going to the island, they are guided by someone. They can not understand English. They can walk on their own. Each person in prison can send a voice guide. They can choose Chinese. Staff will help you. They will follow you. It's interesting. There are stories about them. It's a great experience with sound effects. The scenery is good, too. It's worth it.

    Devil Island, formerly Pelican Island, is located in the center of San Francisco Bay, California, USA. Although it is only a short distance from San Francisco, the island is surrounded by rugged rocks and cold water. Because of its special geographical environment, the island was set up as a prison by the federal government in 1934 and closed in 1963 because it could not sustain its expenditure. In the meantime, almost all of the most notorious heavy criminals in American history had spent time in prison on Pelican Island. This is actually the origin of the name "Devil Island". It can be said that the people detained on Devil Island are all criminals among criminals, which makes people shudder. But now it's just running as a tourist attraction, so don't be so afraid. After becoming a prison, the Devil Island is heavily guarded, and there are numerous cruel tiger sharks lurking in the sea below the cliff. During the 29-year existence of the Devil Island Prison, 36 escapes were recorded, but most of them were captured. Five others were unaccounted for. Officials suspected that they were buried in the turbulent and cold sea. Nevertheless, there are still people who have successfully retreated from Devil Island prisons, such as Mafia Godfather Kabon and Communist Frey. In fact, today's Devil Island prison has become a tourist attraction. When you climb up the ramp along a signpost and drill into a mossy tunnel, you can come to the former Cell House. Narrow cells line up the corridor, one by one. You can directly feel the loss of freedom in living between the iron fence and the three walls. After visiting Devil Island, I found that it was not as gloomy as I had imagined. Maybe it's because there are too many tourists, haha. If there were no tourists with me, I would really be afraid.

    Visit San Francisco Bay by boat and watch the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island and Devil Island at close range. What interests me most is the island in the middle of the sea, Alcatraz Island, where felons were once held, surrounded by cliffs, rough seas and dangerous sharks. It is almost impossible to escape. Many well-known felons, such as Al Capone, have been imprisoned.

    Apart from the prison, Devil Island is surrounded by gardens. There are many kinds of plants that I only know about calla. Looking across the sea at San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge is also a kind of scenery! Very happy!!
