Statue of Liberty Ferry Tickets

Gate Prices Adult $18.00
Child (3-12) $9.00

Visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument, one of the most iconic landmarks in the world, and get admission to the historic Ellis Island Immigration Museum with the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry Ticket, the best way to get to both Liberty and Ellis Islands. Your Pass includes informative, self-guided audio tours of Liberty and Ellis Islands so you can explore at your own pace.

Visit the grounds of Liberty Island and get unbeatable views of Lady Liberty and downtown Manhattan. Then, head over to Ellis Island to learn all about American immigration and research your family history at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.

Please note: access to the Pedestal and Crown of the Statue of Liberty is not included with your Pass. If you wish add access to those parts of the statue, you will need book Crown Reserve and/or Pedestal Reserve tickets separately and make reservations as soon as possible as space is limited and tours often sell out months in advance.

The New York Explorer Pass is the best choice for maximum savings and flexibility. Choose to use your pass for Statue of Liberty Ferry Tickets, then look to the list of other top attractions for your other Explorer Pass admission choices!

Note

IMPORTANT! Please pick up your boarding pass prior to getting on the ferry.

Once you have your ticket, expect to pass through airport-level security and be prepared for a long wait. We suggest arriving early in the morning.

Awesome!
By Steve Verified Reviewer from Kennebunk ME on
Best Uses:
General Sightseeing
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry Ticket:

I had the pass sent right to my phone and it was great! The mobile guidebook that came along with it was particularly helpful. Main piece of advice is read the instructions for how to get your Statue of Liberty ticket closely. It is clearly spelled out in the materials but a little complicated so read carefully.

nice boat ride

Nice ride, Good narative, Skip the line
Cons:
Long Lines, Long walk to boat,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry Ticket:

the actual boat ride was nice... info on it was good ... able to get good pics... to get onto the boat is frustrating... long lines ... security guard pointing up in the wrong direction... asked many staff where we were to go because we were able to skip the line and each one told us something different... the walk to get on the boat was very long and if you had a disability it would be difficult for you to keep up with the guide...

Liked skipping the line!
By Dave and family Verified Reviewer from Boston, MA on
Pros:
Helpful, Convenient, Must do
Cons:
Couldn't get to Crown, Long Security Line,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry Ticket:

The ticket line to get your ticket is so incredibly long. It was great to have my ticket in hand when I got to Battery Park. But I still had to stand in the security line which also was long. I was thankful that I at least got to skip one line. You have to make sure that if you want to visit the Crown you take your ticket to the window to get a timed ticket for the Crown. I did not do that and honestly I think I would have been better off just taking a boat cruise that went past the Statue. I love Ellis Island though and it was really worth going to Ellis Island!
