Ellis Island is the most time consuming as there is so much to see and read. Food there is actually really good and reasonably priced. But you can also pack a lunch if you want. Liberty Island has 3 gift shops that I saw. I found the one right where you walk in to have the most things and better... More

It was a 100 degree day when we arrived to pick up our prepaid tickets. First off, there was no Will Call window, so we ended up waiting with all the peeps that had decided to buy on a whim. Then, our ferry was running 25 minutes late, which NOT ONE PERSON bothered to tell us. There is no covering... More

Statue of Liberty Tours For the first time to NYC, we boarded the Statue cruises for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey. Our hotel was in the Meadowlands so, after some research, we decided to wait until the morning of our final day to drive to Liberty State Park... More

Great and easy. Loved seeing Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. My kids loved sitting on the top level and enjoyed the ride very much.

Everything from booking to the actual trip was smooth and efficient! Great thing is that you can set your boarding time to when you want to leave. Though I didn't book early enough to get the crown access tickets, just being able to visit the Statue of Liberty again was great. Our tickets were for the pedestal this time around.... More

We made the trip from the New Jersey side which is far less busy than Manhattan. While we loved visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island be aware of the following. Temporary toilets at ticket office at the New Jersey side were disgusting to say the least so much so I stopped my wife from going to them. Patience... More

This is the only cruise that goes to both Ellis Island and Statute of Liberty. The cruise is very reasonable and you decide which location you want to go to first. There are frequent ships between the two site and Battery Park in lower Manhattan. The boats are well maintained and very clean.

Spent five plus hours on visits to both the statue and Ellis Island. We'll organised, and along with the free audio tour, made this visit more thrilling, with both history and stories of the millions of people who passed by the lady and through iconic Ellis Island, with stories of there passage. The day was a bit wet, but didn't... More

Perfect way to visit Statue of Liberty. Getting to Liberty State Park was easy. Plenty of parking and a short walk to the ferry. Ferry was clean and offered refreshments that were reasonably priced. Schedule is posted online and as you are getting off the ferry. Only downside was waiting in line at Liberty State park in the boiling sun.
