Choose between a one-hour cruise around our Lady Liberty in the Statue of Liberty Express or experience the twinkle of the NY skyline in a romantic and picturesque Statue By Night cruise. Want to take your time to explore the city? Grab an All Day Access Pass, and choose between a 90-minute cruise on the water, or take the day to explore by hopping on and off as you please. From six piers to choose from, you're able to create your own itinerary and travel down the coast in style. Between each stop, you'll take in the sights from a climate-controlled cabin, or gaze at the concrete jungle from a breezy rooftop deck. Quench your thirst at a full cash bar or nom on snacks for purchase onboard. Whether you're just visiting or a true New Yorker, you'll find a new appreciation for the Big Apple and all of the wonders it has to offer.

Great views of Manhattan and Jersey City. I will definitely use them again.

Definitely recommended! It allows hop on and off so skyline views can be clubbed with exploration of neighbourhoods. Also spends a decent amount of time by the statue. If you're on the deck upstairs, the engine is kinda loud and drowns everything the guide is saying. I'm local so I didn't care much..
