Overview

Save time and minimize stress by buying your tickets to two of New York City’s most sought-after attractions, the Statue of Liberty and the Ellis Island National Immigration Museum in advance. As part your admission package, you’ll enjoy a ferry ride from Manhattan’s Battery Park, a self-guided audio tour, and free time to soak up the experience.

What to Expect
With your Standard Flex Line Admission Ticket for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Cruise in hand, make your way to the departure point at Battery Park — boats prior to 10am have the shortest wait times. 

Your tickets are general admission. At least 30 minutes prior to your departure time access the flex line to security where you you will enjoy a video presentation introducing you to the two iconic monuments you are about to see. When the time comes, step aboard the ship and find a space in either the indoor or outdoor seating areas. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing appropriate to the day's weather, as the cruise and tour are an indoor/outdoor experience. All vessels are wheelchair accessible. 

When the cruise docks, step onto Liberty Island and obtain your audio headset to begin your self-guided audio tour of the grounds. Learn that the Statue of Liberty was a gift from France to America commemorating the centennial of the Declaration of Independence, among other interesting facts. 

Step back aboard the boat for the trip over to Ellis Island. Your standard admission ticket gives you access to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, filled with displays dedicated to the island where millions of arrivals to America landed between the years of 1892 and 1954. 

When you have finished exploring Ellis Island, step back on the boat and cruise back to New York's Battery Park while admiring views of the Manhattan skyline. Concessions and souvenirs are available on board the boat.
Itinerary
Upgrade Option

Guided walking tour to include priority boarding and pedestal access

If upgrade is selected, you will meet your guide at Castle Clinton, a former fort inside Battery Park in Manhattan, to hop on the ferry to Liberty Island. You’ll bypass the lines with priority boarding, allowing you more time to enjoy historical facts about the Statue of Liberty National Monument and learn why it is a symbol of freedom for some many people worldwide.

Admire the New York City skyline as you disembark on Liberty Island and explore the grounds on a guided tour. Your ticket grants you access to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, which features several observation levels and a museum with exhibits on the iconic landmark’s construction and architecture. 

Afterward, board the ferry to Ellis Island and listen as your guide shares information about this historical gateway to America. 

Upon arrival, tour the grounds and spend time at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Inside the restored Great Hall, hear stories about the former federal immigration station that processed more than 12 million immigrants from its opening in 1892 until closing in 1954. You'll also learn how US citizens can trace their ancestors here. 

You are on your own for the remainder of the visit, staying as long as you want before you return to Manhattan.

New York boat trip

Has to be done, this is a great city but also fabulous to view by boat. Statue of Liberty is amazing the closer you get. Worth a visit and take lots of pics!

Be sure you get on the right Ferry!!

As you leave Ellis, there are two ferry lines, going in opposite directions. The tour itself is great. The audio walking tour is helpful, but not for a disabled individual. Two hands required. It would be nice if they offered earphones with the units. Gratefully,...More
