Ellis Island Ferry

The ferry also stops at Ellis Island, where passengers can explore the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration. This historical landmark provides a captivating journey through America's immigration history, featuring exhibits, photographs, and personal stories of the millions of immigrants who passed through its doors.

Ps. Be sure to select New Jersey as your departure when booking tickets! These tickets are without Pedestal access.

Statue of Liberty
Everyone that writes about the Statue of Liberty simply has to put an image of the Statue of Liberty in it. So that's why I added this image. Ps. With this trip are no reservations to the Statue of Liberty, you must reserve separately.

Ps. Bookings for the crown are sold out 99% of the time, for visiting the Pedestal, you have to add $18 to the ticket and book in advance. Here you can book it from New Jersey. If you book with GetYourGuide, you must buy more expensive tickets than the $28 ferry alone and look for tickets that include ‘the Pedestal”.
