The whole point of these ferries is to get you to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty quickly, and it's quicker from NJ than from NY, but I like looking around the harbor, and almost wished I had more time to enjoy the trip....More

The views of the New York City skyline were great. There is parking nearby for $7. Our cruise did leave late though.

Hi all, You have a number of choices when you book the tour. However at the minimum you have an audio tour of both sites included in your package.

Great experience with statue cruises. We enjoyed Ellis Island, a little less crowded than liberty island, but lots to see and you can feel the history around you. Liberty island was neat, great to see the statue up close, but oh so hot and crowded...More

We were staying for a week in Seaside Heights NJ and knew we'd need a couple of day trips to break up our days at the beach. Someone recommended visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. At first we were nervous thinking we'd need...More

Felt like cattle being headed on and off the boat and the attraction. Very crowded and poor organization. Food at cafeteria was overpriced.

Took the ferry two weeks ago. The time is the ferry ride from NJ. Arrive 30 mins early, park and walk 5 mins to center. Pickup tickets, better still print at home. Walk 10 mins to jetty and security lines. Short wait times... More
Hi, I am planning to take my daughter and granddaughter to the Statue of Liberty on Dec 4th and have a 1 PM reservation from Liberty Park, NJ which includes access to the crown. Questions: 1. What does the 1 pm reservation time refer to: e.g., the time that I need to be at the ferry box office to pick up my tickets or the time the ferry departs, or the time that the actual tour of the statue begins???? 2. What time should I plan to arrive at the ferry terminal to pick up my tickets? 2. Is all of the security screening and ticket pickup done at the ferry terminal? When I get to Liberty Island, is there a line to get into the statue? 3. Is there a place to eat lunch either in Liberty State Park, the ferry or Liberty Island? As you can see, I am very confused about the exact procedure, and the park and ferry websites are very vague.
