Sailing 7 days a week at 12pm (11:45am boarding), 2pm (1:45pm boarding) and 4pm (3:45pm boarding) from New York Harbor Pier 36. We are a Picture Cruise Tour, so we do not land on Liberty Island, rather, we circle and idle at the best vantage points for everyone to have the opportunity to take group photos, selfies and video with unobscured views of Lady Liberty, Downtown NYC and Brooklyn's Skylines and Bridges, and other nautical points of interest in New York City Harbor.
Statue NYC offers a convenient up close experience, with full facilites aboard our vessels; modern designed interiors, massive outdoor observation decks with concessions for beverages for adults and children as well as food. Exploring our vessels is an added bonus for those seeking a quick and convenient day with the relatives or friends and still be able to enjoy the rest of the day to visit other tourist destinations or a night on the town.
PLEASE NOTE: We are on the Pier, NOT inside the building which is private property. Walk along the left hand side of the building out to the Pier and our staff are in "Blue" Shirts. You will be looking for the vessels "Majestic Princess" or "Jewel", which we operate for StatueNYC.
Please do not enter the Pier 36 Building, as it is private property. Thank you.
Tourists love New York, New York Harbor and the Statue of LibertyTourists love New York and visiting it's iconic locations which are always busy. The crowds and lines to the Statue of Liberty/Liberty Island are absolutely grueling, you have to wait for what seems like forever, you do so just to go through TSA-esque searches and again, must wait for your ferry to the Statue of Liberty. But the biggest let down is that you can only access the Pedestal of the Statue, you can no longer ascend to the Crown or Torch, which makes your journey there extremely limited and your vantage points for photos, not so opportune.
Not only do we sail to The Statue of Liberty, we cruise past these iconic NYC Landmarks!
- The Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges
- Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Rising Skyline and Historic South Street Seaport
- Wall Street, Downtown, Battery Park, Staten Island Ferry & The Freedom Tower
- Governor's Island, Liberty Island, Ellis Island and even New Jersey
- The UN Building, the Empire State Building, the Pepsi Cola Sign and the Historic Masted Ships at Seaport
Most Statue of Liberty Cruises are short and only afford a limited set of views before heading back, almost all charging a lofty fee for both adults and children no matter their age!
