Several times throughout the day, Statue Cruises ferries depart from Liberty State Park in New Jersey and Battery Park in New York, traveling towards an iconic symbol of freedom: the Statue of Liberty. So long as the statue isn't away on vacation, passengers can alight at Liberty Island and view the statue. Statue Cruises' vessels also dock at Ellis Island, where guests can explore the rich history of immigrants who came to start a new life in the United States. And the sightseeing doesn't stop once they've stepped back on board—the harbor cruises boast magnificent views of Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and more.
