We loved this service and is a must to do in NYC. The views are amazing of the Brooklyn Bridge, Financial District sky line & the Statue of Liberty. You do not need to do any other boat trip as we found out as we...More

Excellent way to see New York from the water and to explore with the ability to hop on and hop off! Start early though to get best value... The commentary was great and tour guides readily answered questions and were knowledgeable. Boats came regularly and...More

The ferry was pleasant enough. Running a little late but ok. However the return bus service was a complete disaster. Given that they know when their ferries are coming in I can't understand why it would be be ready and waiting. It wasn't clear what...More

Our NY Pass included a ticket so we visited the 9/11 memorial via the water taxi. The onboard guide was very informative and obliging. The boat took us very close Statue of Liberty so we could get plenty of photos. Lovely staff. All very helpful.

Great Deal! Free shuttle from above stores to NYC. Low budget weekend adventure with kids. Very pleasant crew and facilities.

Being able to see Manhattan Island from the water was a wonderful experience. Having a person describe the various buildings and history of each area added to the adventure.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

If you never got off, I supposed the round trip would be about 1.5-2 hours by the time you waited at each stop for disboarding and boarded.

We got our tickets at Pier 79. The attendant was very helpful. We got off at Wall Street to visit the 9/11 Memorial and other sites in the area.

We ended up just enjoying the ride, and not using it for hop on or off... At sunset, it's soooooo worth it getting on the river!!
