Unfortunately we were in NY when the island was still closed. With the NY pass we were able to go on board and the boat took us in front of the statue. Nice to see it so close.

I was so surprised that the boat was so empty leaving from Jersey City! It was great for us because we got our choice of seats on top of the boat! The crew was friendly and helpful. The boat ride was smooth, and the views….AMAZING! Traveling right in front of the Statue of Liberty is literally priceless. I was amazed... More

We were dropped at the ticket booth, being this time of the year we had no issues and no lines! There is still a decent walk to the security area before boarding the ferry, I think that there should still be some sort of complimentary shuttle taking into account people that have issues walking distances. The ferry wasnt crowded and... More

It will be about 10 degrees cooler out on the water. The inside decks are heated, but of course the great skyline views are on the top of the ship.

Used them for purchasing our Citypass vouchers and for the trip to the statue of liberty. Very efficient. Just very cold on the boats during December even when sitting inside.

There is no explaining how awesome it is to see the Statue of Liberty from this cruise boat. I just loved it and visiting Ellis Island from this excursion was exciting. I have lived in this area for over 30 years and can't believe it took me so long to get here! Do yourself a favor & take the trip... More

Statue cruise is among the best way to reach Liberty Island. Unfortunately, I couldn't get tickets to the crown (sold out) and also Ellis Island was closed. Tip: If you are staying in Jersey City, you can reach warren street to take a ferry ($2)till Liberty Park , watch Empty Sky and take this Statue Cruise ($17) till Liberty Island... More

Not overly crowded, great parking $12 dollars for the day I believe. Clean ferries. Book online! Customer service was pleasant. Amazing views of the skyline and the SOL. I got my best pictures while riding this ferry. You can take the NJ ferry to the SOL and you also have the option to visit battery park and the City without... More

Less crowded, more parking space and less waiting time if you take the statue cruises from jersey city and the liberty state park is a must see. The manhattan skyline is so very beautiful from here.
