Ferry to Liberty & Ellis Islands
See the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
A trip to New York wouldn't be complete without visiting the world-famous Statue of Liberty National Monument, and historic Ellis Island (home to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum). T&Cs: The Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry operates from 8:30am to 4:00pm 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. On arrival you will need to pass through a security checkpoint before boarding the ferry, but do not join this line without first retrieving your ferry ticket. Please allow 30 minutes prior to boarding for this security check. This ticket includes a ferry journey to both Liberty Island and Ellis Island, but not interior monument or museum access. Please note that our retail price includes an USD$2.00 per person transaction fee.
