    Make sure you sit on the left side of the boat, when you're facing the back end. That's the side that will face the Statue when you're riding by!

    Make sure you get your tickets online to get in the express "Reserve" line. Otherwise you'll be in line forever. You only need to get your tickets a day early.

    The gift shop onboard has a lot of the same stuff as in the gift shop at the statue. Skip the lines and get the souvenir on board.

    Skip the lines: Reserve your tickets online for priority boarding. You can also leave from the NJ side where the lines are much shorter.

    Try to sit on the first level. You'll still be able to get good pictures and you'll make it off faster.

    If you don't have enough time on either island to go to the gift shop, there are two small shops which sell magnets and Statue of Liberty hats on the boat.

    Make sure you're on Liberty Island before 3:30 or you won't be able to go up into the statue. Found that out the hard way. T_T

    Signage says they use "airport-like security screening" but I wasn't assaulted by a TSA agent so I feel like the security section doesn't live up to the hype. The actual ferry ride is alright though.

    Since they haven't figured out how to sign it properly if you reserve online and can't print you still have to wait in a long line and then they will fail to tell you to go to the reserved line

    Lines are for people who did not buy their tickets ahead of time and brought too much stuff. Think airport security check and travel light.

    17$ для взрослых, скидок студентам нет. Сейчас можно погулять по острову, но внутрь Статуи не пускают. На борту вам предложат крендельки, хотдоги и напитки по приемлемым ценам:)

    Para tirar fotos no caminho, fique a estibordo (direita) na ida e bombordo (esquerda) na volta. Pode ir em pé desde o início, então pegue um bom ponto porque vai juntar gente.
  • Andre Miguel N.
    Recomendo comprar fora do balcão pois se paga 19$ nas cias de signseeing e 24$ no guinche oficial, muito diferente do Brasil!!!

    24$ с человека. Проезжает мимо острова Эллис и Статуи Свободы, на которые высадка не осуществляется. Если садится наверху, то в какой-то момент виды Нью Йорка скроются за спинами туристов.

    Il traghetto c'è ognj mezz'ora e ha un servizio bar. Il punto di imbarco è molto affollato e disorganizzato, specialmente per chi ha comprato i biglietti online e deve ritirarli lì.
