Liberty Island, New York City, New York, 10004

The Basics

Statue of Liberty tours start with a scenic ferry ride to the island, where you can explore the grounds or head to the famed 10-story-high observation pedestal to see the original torch. From there, enjoy great views and photo ops of the New York City skyline and neighboring New Jersey. You can also secure tickets to the crown but be prepared to climb 354 steeply winding steps to the top.

Guided tours feature live narration and historical insight, while informative audio tours explore the construction and restoration of the monument. The monument is also a highlight on New York Harbor cruises, city helicopter tours, and waterfront walking tours.

Circle Line: NYC Liberty Cruise
This was such a nice cruise. Just what we needed to see the Statue of Liberty under the time limit we had. The boat was clean, offered refreshments, provided a smooth ride, and Chris gave a really nice narrative of all the surrounding attractions. I would definitely recommend this cruise and look forward to possibly bringing more family with me next time.

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Tour: All Options
I have been to NYC several times, but I have never actually been to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island. We didn’t have time for the compressive tour so we did the two hour express. James was our tour guide, and he was wonderful! He helped us get through the line quickly and find the perfect place on the boat. We learned so much and laughed often. He made sure we knew where we were going and what to do when the tour portion ended.

Summertime crowds can be intense, so the earlier you arrive at Battery Park for the first few departing ferries, the better. Booking priority-access tickets in advance is a helpful way to maximize your time. The first ferry to Liberty Island typically departs at 9:30am and the last departs at 3:30pm, with extended hours in summer and around the holidays.
