Tours of the Immigration Station are led by park staff or volunteers and are approximately 1 hour in length. The site can accommodate 90 people (approximately 3 classes). School tour scheduling often depends on school and ferry schedules. Public and private school groups can schedule visits to the Angel Island Immigration Station year round by contacting us below or the Tour Desk Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Space is limited and teachers are encouraged to reserve tours early in the school year.
