As of 2003, the gardens on the island are overseen by the Garden Conservancy, The Golden Gate Parks Conservancy, and the National Park Service.
Tours and garden visits are available. The entry fee is the cost of the ferry to the island. Tickets are best purchased in advance, as tours regularly sell out.
Book ferry passage here.
