Climb aboard your boat at Pier 15 on the east side of New York City, and take a 60-minute boat ride to within 100 feet of the Statue of Liberty.
Cruise right under the Brooklyn Bridge and see the most famous skyline in the world. Your live English guide will point out the sites as you journey along the river including the Empire State Building, the new Freedom Tower, the Manhattan Bridge, Governor's Island and more. Make use of both the indoor and outdoor seating, along with large open windows for your viewing pleasure.
Get within touching distance of "Lady Liberty" and then move on to Ellis Island to take photos of the famous entry point to New York City. Marvel at the skyline of Manhattan and its famous skyscrapers, including the new One World Trade Center. Glide down both the east and west side of Lower Manhattan, and purchase drinks and food from the concession stand aboard the boat.
A multilingual audio tour is available in English, Italian, German, Spanish, French, Korean, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese, via a downloadable app. It is recommended that you download the app and the language content before arriving at the boat. Go to the App Store and search for 'Audiotour Guides NSDEV' (with the symbol of a pair of headsets). Open the app, choose your language and download the tour information in that language. WiFi is available on the dock and on the boat, however it is not always reliable, so it is recommended that you download the audio tour onto your phone before arriving at the dock.

I so appreciated the staff at the office! I had two elderly people in group of 17. We arrived 15 minutes before the office opened on a COLD morning. She allowed the two to come in and wait. Once it was officially open, we went in and redeemed the voucher and went back to wait. A few minutes before boarding a HUGE group of people arrived that packed the small room. The office lady came told one of my daughters she would let us board a little early and she did. As I watched the other group come aboard, we would have never been able to get the two elderly plus our 4 year old as well. THANK YOU, Viator for making our trip successful. The only complaint I might have was I did not realize we needed to be listening to our recorders BEFORE we left dock. Our guide was always way behind where we were so I was never really sure what I was looking at.
Very good tour, especially due to our tour guide Bonnie!
It was a brilliant adventure to see the Statute of Liberty. The boat was well equipped with a bar and snacks. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The actual visit to the statute was perfect, the captain turned the boat so that everybody had a really brilliant view of the statute wherever they stood.
I ordered the boat cruise plus the statue of liberty and Ellis island tickets. Only after paying did I learn that they were seperate boat rides. I wish I would have waited and bought my tickets through the national parks service.
The boat was overcrowded. We had our 7, 5 and 2 year old granddaughters with us to show them the Statue of Liberty. The trip unfortunately was stressful due to a bus load of tourists boarding the boat and being overly aggressive with space and picture taking, including taking pictures of our girls
Depart from Pier 15 located at South Street Seaport of NYC near the Famous Brooklyn Bridge, sail over to the Statue of Liberty and take amazing photos of Lady Liberty. Cruise next to Ellis Island, the most famous entry point to the United States, now housing the famous Ellis Island Museum. See the Freedom Towers with remarkable vantage points for speechless photos.
