as of 5/24/14, the ferry is $2 round trip. 10:30am, 11:00am ferries are free on weekends only from Manhattan, Slip 7. 11:00am & 11:30am ferries are free from Brooklyn, Pier 6 on weekends.
No extra charge for bicycles on the ferry... and Governors Island offers miles of vehicle-free biking! (Bicycles and surreys can be rented on the island.)
The ferry is free before noon on weekends. The lines can get long, so make sure you get there at least 30 min before your desired departure time!
Ferry is no longer free most times (save the first two trips out from Manhattan on the weekends). Now costs $2 round trip for adults or $20 for the season pass but now runs during the week.
The ferry is free, departing on the hour on Fridays and on half hour and hour on Saturdays, Sundays, and holiday Mondays. Bikes are permitted; personal autos are not.
Fits much more people than the line ever makes it look. They can almost always fit everyone on. Sit up top for more space and better people watching.
Lots more free stuff than the island itself. Free bike rentals on Fridays and free minigolf on weekends. Who doesn't like free stuff?
Wonderful way to experience NYC - $2 during the week and free on weekends I believe.

They now charge $2 for a round trip ferry ride. :( Weekend mornings are still free.
the ferry now costs $2 (round trip). there are a few crossings that are still free in the am.
Uses the same port the Carpathia used when she docked with the Titanic survivors. You know. After that incident with the iceberg.
It takes more than 10 mins to get passengers off the boat, so dont tell me this boat is every 10 mins.
FREE + the view on the upper level deck = awesome ..even for a NYer :)
Stay on the upper levels for a great view!
