    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.

    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!

    Get your tickets early and try to get the very first ferry in the AM to go and enjoy visiting more than one island.

    Grab a seat on the upperdeck at the back of the vessel. Good photo-place while going to liberty island.

    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 long lines. Reserve your tickets online and either print your ticket or get it from the pier entrance (castle clinton). The lines are very long.

    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.

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

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

    Want to see the sites, go to the top deck - want a quick exit, stay on the lower deck

    Arrive before 2:00pm or you'll only have time to visit one island.

    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.

    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

    The logistics here are simply flawed! Standing in line 60 minutes in the sun despite having a "fixed" entry time!

    Not enough seating and slightly too rocky for my taste. Views of Manhattan good though, and staff friendly.

    Don't bring anything even remotely resembling a weapon... Just got harassed for having a tiny Swiss army knife which I had no problem going through TSA with multiple times... These guys are a joke!!!

    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
