Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry Ticket

A $20.00 value - Included with your New York Explorer Pass!

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognized landmarks in the world, symbolic of all the values that have come to represent the United States. This ferry ticket gives you access to both Liberty and Ellis Island. Please note that access to the Pedestal and Crown of the Statue of Liberty is not included with your Pass. If you wish to view those parts of the statue, you will need to pay an additional charge and reservations are required since space is limited.

On this excursion, you’ll have the opportunity to marvel at the Statue of Liberty, a national monument given to the United States as a token of goodwill from France in 1886 thanks to the original idea of Edouard de Laboulaye. Laboulaye saw the country as an international beacon of hope for having abolished slavery after the Civil War. The Statue of Liberty now stands as an international symbol of freedom and democracy, giving particular comfort to Americans and pride to New Yorkers in the post-September 11th era.

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty and 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.

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty and 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:
Convenient, Must do, Helpful
Cons:
Long Security Line, Couldn't get to Crown,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty and 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!
