We recently went on a trip to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty/Crown with 15 family members. The location of Statue Cruises was easy to find and while parking is available there is a small fee and the lots were crowded. We had to walk...More

The views of the New York City skyline were great. There is parking nearby for $7. Our cruise did leave late though.

Hi all, You have a number of choices when you book the tour. However at the minimum you have an audio tour of both sites included in your package.

Great experience with statue cruises. We enjoyed Ellis Island, a little less crowded than liberty island, but lots to see and you can feel the history around you. Liberty island was neat, great to see the statue up close, but oh so hot and crowded...More

Felt like cattle being headed on and off the boat and the attraction. Very crowded and poor organization. Food at cafeteria was overpriced.

Statue Cruises is THE exclusive ferry to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, BUT it's NOT listed high or at all when doing a Google search...tricky! $18 adult and $9 child are the ferry fees - that's it. Same price if you want...More

Took the ferry two weeks ago. The time is the ferry ride from NJ. Arrive 30 mins early, park and walk 5 mins to center. Pickup tickets, better still print at home. Walk 10 mins to jetty and security lines. Short wait times... More
Hi, I am planning to take my daughter and granddaughter to the Statue of Liberty on Dec 4th and have a 1 PM reservation from Liberty Park, NJ which includes access to the crown. Questions: 1. What does the 1 pm reservation time refer to: e.g., the time that I need to be at the ferry box office to pick up my tickets or the time the ferry departs, or the time that the actual tour of the statue begins???? 2. What time should I plan to arrive at the ferry terminal to pick up my tickets? 2. Is all of the security screening and ticket pickup done at the ferry terminal? When I get to Liberty Island, is there a line to get into the statue? 3. Is there a place to eat lunch either in Liberty State Park, the ferry or Liberty Island? As you can see, I am very confused about the exact procedure, and the park and ferry websites are very vague.
