Solicitation for proposals for a new Concession Contract to provide Alcatraz passenger ferry service and associated services within Golden Gate National Recreation Area

The National Park Service (NPS) has released a prospectus soliciting for proposals in response to a business opportunity to operate Alcatraz passenger ferry service and associated services within Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The Director has determined that the existing concessioner is not a preferred offeror for the contract to be awarded. The term of the new concession contract will be for fifteen (15) years.

Any proposal must be received by 4:00 p.m. (PT) July 11, 2018. Please submit proposals to:

National Park Service

Site Visit

All interested parties attending the scheduled site visit must email Kimberley Gagliolo no later than 2:00 p.m. (PT) February 2, 2018 to reserve a spot. At that time, you will receive further instructions regarding the site visit. The email must provide the following information:

  • Name of company or organization
  • A list of all attendees (full name)
  • Name of the primary contact, including email and phone number

Due to space constraints, interested parties will be limited to a total of six (6) people per company or organization. Additionally, the site visit will provide access to work areas not open to the public, therefore no one under the age of 18 will be permitted on the site visit.


Finally, questions are due to Kimberley Gagliolo in writing no later than 2:00 p.m. (PT) on February 20, 2018.
