I use this service at times. They do not run all the time and often have limited service. Also do not be late, they wait for no one, even a large group of people running down the gangplank they will leave without (the ferry bus was late). They at least are on time and they run when they are supposed... More

This ferry runs every 15 minutes and is a great way to save money by staying across the Hudson river.

Love taking the ferry to and from NYC. However, the parking prices seem to go up every couple of months - $14 per day and counting. Awful high for unattended parking on the NJ side of the hudson.

The NY Waterway Ferry is great...quick access to NYC from NJ and at a reasonable RT price ($18.00). My only advice is to be at the dock on time...the ferry waits for about 1 minute after docking...so don't be late!

Husband took ferry R/T into Manhattan for $18. If you hold on to your voucher, provides bus service in Manhattan for the day. Arranged through Concierge at the Sheraton Lincoln Harbor Hotel which is just steps from ferry pier.

We were excited to book a one day ferry trip up the Hudson from Highlands, NJ. It was touted as a Fall Foliage trip with a stop in Cold Springs, NY. Honestly, the leaves were beautiful, but there was one BIG problem. The windows (both lower and upper decks) on the ferry were so filmy and caked with salt spray... More

My daughter and used the ferry as our primary method of transportation to and from NYC. Free bus rides are offered upon arrival at the terminal in NYC. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a quick and fun ride. Make sure you are sitting down because the ferry cranks it up and you make it across the Hudson in... More

Skip the PATH and the subway on the weekend and take the NY Waterway Ferry into NYC. Enjoy scenic views that tourists pay big dollars for on the "Harbor Cruise." Watch the timetable as the last boat may leave you if you plan for a late night out in NYC. This is a great way to bring your bike or... More

Always check the schedule carefully. Service on Sundays is very limited compared to other days of the week.
