Ferry is nothing fancy, but it is so fast it is almost not enough time to enjoy all the scenery on both sides of the river.

Some of the best views of Manhattan can be observed from the ferry boat itself or from the ferry terminal in Weehawken. The ride can be a bit rocky in foul weather or when the ferry cuts across the wake of a much larger vessel, but the trip is not long enough to develop sea-sickness. For an eight minute ride... More

The Ferry comes on time and isn't very crowded. You feel like your destination is a bit of a treat. I was there in thi hotel several times and in the summer you get a lovely breeze.

This was part of the adventure of our first trip to NYC. It was great for quick access to the city and fun sightseeing. They run every few minutes so it is very convenient. The fare includes the bus in the city - just don't sit too close to the front on the bus - watching how the driver maneuvers... More

$9.25 each way. Luckily kids 12 and younger were free for the summer! The shuttles in Manhattan, were convenient, but we were never able to get a return shuttle, and ended up walking many many blocks back to the ferry at night.

Quick and frequent rides back forth from NJ and NY and free bus rides on the NY side to take you all over the city.

I took the ferry with a friend on our first trip to Times Square and it was an extremely nice experience. It was very easy to navigate with the tickets and where to brings you. It was clean and a quick but nice ride. Inexpensive and nice experience to add to our NYC trip

Loved our trip to the city. To avoid the traffic we decided to visit the NYC by waterway. Great experience would recommend it and definitely a better alternative then paying tolls and parking in the city. Only negative remark would be that when you are returning late then you would need to get to 12th Ave and 38 street. Its... More

On time, comfortable, minimal expense. The terminal to come back from Manhattan to NJ is very nice. It's loaded with security and has televisions, newsstands with goodies, and is inside, heated and cooled.

The NY Waterway Ferry was easy to utilize, quite convenient and just a lot of fun. The interior was very clean and comfortable, and in the summer weather standing on the bridge outside was a perfect spot for photos or to enjoy the wind & weather.
