This ticket from New York Water Taxi gives you access to the 911 Memorial in Manhattan, and to a variety of excellent destinations around the city. You can hop on and off the water taxi as you please at designated stops along the way.
The National September 11 Memorial pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who were tragically killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon, and at the World Trade Center bombing that occurred in 1993.
The 911 Memorial features poignantly arranged twin-reflecting pools of nearly an acre in size, and is also home to one of the largest manmade waterfalls on the continent. The name of every person killed in the attacks is inscribed onto a bronze panel edging the Memorial pools. The design for the 911 Memorial was selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations. The results are both impressive and sobering.
In addition to bringing you access to the 911 Memorial, the New York Water Taxi pass also provides convenient transportation to many other top spots of the city “a la carte” style -- meaning you can hop on or off at any of the designated points along the route. Other sites you won’t want to miss include the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Broadway, the Financial District, South Street Seaport, DUMBO, the Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and more.

Once your visit to the Memorial is complete, you may then use the Water Taxi hop-on hop-off feature for the remainder of the day.

Comments about Smart Destinations :
This was a great way to see the Memorial. At first I wondered why I was taking a water taxi from Midtown to go Downtown but it turned out great. We were able to skip the subway ride and instead grabbed the water taxi. We got to see great views of the city on the way downtown. The Memorial was about a 10 minute walk from the last Taxi stop. It was amazing. Really felt so lucky to have seen it.
