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 to see the boats from Battery Park loaded down with people! We had maybe 12 people on our boat.

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 the trip was fine, however the stale 'wee' smell that came from the restrooms on the ferry was a bit unpleasant.
The ferries run frequently even in the off season, we were very happy with the trip.

You get a trip tot he Ellis Island Museum and Statue of Liberty. We paid for pedestal access but were too tired from walking the day before. But so moving to see it all!

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.
