Ferry to Liberty & Ellis Islands

See the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

T&Cs: The Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry operates from 9:00am to 3:00pm with regular departures from Battery Park. You will need to redeem your ticket voucher with a Big Bus Tours staff member before heading to the ferry terminal.
