  • Address: Whitehall Ferry Terminal, 4 South Street
  • Hours: Open 24 hours every day
  • Admission: Free

For the best free cruise in town, hop aboard the Staten Island passenger ferry. The free round-trip cruise takes you past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, with terrific views back to Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The trip takes 25 minutes each way, and ferries run 24 hours round the clock. Around 60,000 passengers use the ferries daily.

You have to disembark at Staten Island by law, so while you’re there why not take a walk around the Snug Harbor Cultural Center museums and Botanical Gardens.

Practical Info

Staten Island ferries depart from the Whitehall Terminal at South Ferry in Lower Manhattan, next to Battery Park. Subway stations nearby include South Ferry, Bowling Green, Broad Street and Whitehall Street.

The ferries arrive on Staten Island at the St. George Ferry Terminal.
