This is a FREE ferry ride that takes you right past the beautiful state of Liberty. We go each time we are in NYC with family.

Great free way to see Statue of Liberty and New York skyline. Takes an hour round trip and you board in a massive group but it is a nice ride, especially if you need a calm activity.

Free ferry, and the best way to see SOL in my opinion. Great experience, and didn't feel crowded on the boat. Lots of opportunity for photo's. Can take the next ferry back right away to have this experience done in 1 hour.

In order to get unrestricted views, you should try and be on the top deck or by the side of the ferry.
