Important Notes:

  • Each person age 4 or older must have a ticket.
  • All orders will be confirmed by email only, so you must provide your valid email address on the Order Form since that is the email address to which your confirmation and tickets will be sent. There is no option for receiving or retrieving these tickets other than by email. You will not have the option of downloading E-Tickets for this product. You must confirm on the Order Form that you acknowledge these arrangements regarding these Statue of Liberty Flex Tickets.
  • After submitting your order, you will receive TWO emails from us. The first is your receipt for the credit card transaction only and will NOT contain your tickets. When your order is finalized, you will be sent a second email that will contain the individual attachments for each ticket ordered.
  • You must be able to print each attachment and each passenger age 4 or older must present their printed ticket at Battery Park for ferry boarding. All minors (17 and under) must be accompanied by a responsible adult 25 years old or older. If they arrive without an adult, they may be denied entrance into the park.
  • Children under age 4 are free and do not require tickets.
  • Adults (ages 18+) may be required to present a photo ID upon boarding, so all adults should bring a valid photo ID with them on the day of the tour.
  • While you will enter your chosen tour date from the availability calendar, each ticket ordered will have a printed validity start date and is valid for one admission on any date from that validity start date until 180 days after that printed date. These tickets are pre-purchased, so the validity start date will almost always be a date before your tour date. The number of days your ticket will remain valid after the tour date you enter on the Order Form will almost always be between 30 and 175 days.
  • These tickets are only valid for departure from Battery Park in New York City.
  • Tickets not used by the end of their validity period shall be null and void and of no value.
  • Resale of Statue of Liberty Flex Tickets is strictly prohibited.
  • While purchasing Statue of Liberty Flex Tickets means you can avoid the ticket lines at Battery Park, you will still be required to go through the security screening line. Visitors must go through airport-style security at Battery Park, prior to boarding a ferry. All belongings will pass through an X-ray machine and all visitors will be asked to go through a metal detector. Shoes, coats, jackets and scarves must be removed as part of the screening process. These tickets allow you to board the ferry as soon as you get through the security screening. The earlier you get through the line, the quicker you can board your ferry to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. After the screening, you will board the next available ferry. The screening and boarding the ferry usually takes approximately 30 minutes, though it can take longer than an hour at certain times of the day during peak season.
  • If you choose to depart on a ferry after 1:00 pm, you will only be able to visit either Liberty Island or Ellis Island. Unfortunately, there will not be enough time to visit both landmarks before the last ferry of the day departs either island.
  • To the extent permitted by law, the management reserves the right to refund the purchase price of the ticket and to revoke the rights granted herein.

Frequently Asked Questions:

When will I get my tickets? -- If your order is for a tour date within 72 hours of receipt of your order, your confirmation and tickets will be sent as soon as possible. If your order is for a tour date within the next 90 days, we will make every effort to send your ticket confirmation within 72 hours from receipt of your order. Our goal is for you to have as much “flex” option as possible with your tickets. So, dates booked beyond 90 days may not be confirmed until 30 days prior to the selected reservation date.

Is the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island? -- No. The Statue of Liberty is located on Liberty Island. Ellis Island is where the National Museum of Immigration and the former federal immigration station are located.

Do I have to buy a separate ferry ticket if I want to go to Ellis Island? -- No, the ferries will take you to both Liberty Island and Ellis Island.

What if the weather is bad and the ferries are not running? -- The ferry operator reserves the right to postpone or cancel ferry rides to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Because these are "flex" tickets with availability dates beyond the tour date chosen on the Order Form, no refund is available if the ferry is not running on an individual date.

If I leave something on Liberty Island or the ferry by mistake, do you have a lost-and-found department? -- Sorry, but we cannot be responsible for any items left behind, lost or stolen during this tour.

Where can I pick up my tickets at Battery Park? -- These Statue of Liberty Flex Tickets are NOT available for pick-up anywhere. You must print them from your order confirmation email and bring them with you to Battery Park to present before boarding the ferry. There is no "will call" option for these tickets. You may not show the tickets on a "smart phone" device.

Where do the ferries depart from? -- Battery Park in New York City. Your confirmation email will provide an address for GPS purposes and basic information about the nearest subway stops. All NYC taxi drivers will know where you want to go if you tell them your destination is Battery Park for the Statue of Liberty ferry and hotel concierges and front desk personnel will be able to assist with directions.

Since I board the ferry at Battery Park, must I also return to Battery Park...or is there another option? -- You can choose to either board a ferry to return to Battery Park or to board one to be taken to Liberty Landing in New Jersey. However, once you disembark in New Jersey, you will not be able to board a Statue of Liberty ferry back to Battery Park. There is a Liberty Landing Ferry between Liberty State Park and Manhattan, but you would have to pay the normal fare for that ferry to make that trip.

What about wheelchair or handicap accessibility? -- The ferries and both Liberty Island and Ellis Island grounds are wheelchair accessible. All buildings are handicapped accessible. Restrooms are available in the Monument and near all food and beverage areas. A limited number of wheelchairs are available at both Liberty Island and Ellis Island on first-come-first-served basis. There is no fee. Only assistance/service animals for the disabled are allowed on ferries and in the parks. Visitors going to the observation pedestal are required to climb 24 stairs. Elevators are available for the Ft. Wood Promenade area. The information center has an assisted portable induction loop system for those who are hearing impaired. Ranger-guided ASL – American Sign Language - translation tours are available at both Liberty and Ellis Island. They are provided on scheduled intervals at both islands for free. There are emergency medical services on both islands.

Any tips about what I should wear for my visit? -- Choose comfortable, safe, practical and appropriate shoes. You will be on your feet for much of your visit and will be traveling on ferry boats which can be affected by waves from passing vessels. Boat decks also can get wet. You will also have to walk along a plank to get on and off the boat. For safety reasons, open-toe footwear, flip flops and heels are not good choices. Dress for the season when you visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument and the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. During the summer months, temperatures can rise to the high 90s with high humidity. In the winter, temperatures are chilly, so dress in layers in case conditions change suddenly.

Are food and beverages available? -- Yes, there are cafes on both Liberty Island and Ellis Island. There is seating inside and outside. An outside terrace at the Ellis Island cafe overlooks the Immigrant Wall of Honor and Lower Manhattan. Visitors are welcome to bring their own, though large coolers will not be allowed through security screening. No food or beverages (including water) are permitted in the Statue Museum and Pedestal.

What can I carry with me on this tour? -- The lighter you travel, the better. Backpacks are allowed on the islands, but you must store a backpack in a locker for an additional charge if you go inside the Statue of Liberty. Small purses, fanny packs or camera bags may be allowed.

If I'm driving to the ferry, is parking available? -- Although private parking garages may be available to you near Battery Park, parking is usually very limited and can be costly.

The Statue of Liberty:

The Statue of Liberty National Monument was dedicated on October 28, 1886. From the base to the top of the torch, she is 151 feet high. The exterior structure of the Statue is made of copper and the interior support structure is made of steel. Her official name is "Liberty Enlightening the World."

Located on a 12 acre island, the Statue of Liberty was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue was designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.

Ellis Island

The Ellis Island Immigration Museum is an important and iconic part of America's history. Over 12 million passed through the island while it was in operation. Today, more than 40% of Americans have an ancestor who entered the country through Ellis Island.

Ellis Island Immigration Museum is part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. It was added to the National Park System in May of 1965 and following an extensive restoration, its main building opened over a quarter century later on September 10, 1990 as a National Museum of Immigration.

24 Hours Minimum Advance Booking Required. This tour does not include hotel pick up. It is recommended that you arrive one hour prior to your preferred departure time. Please order online or call to order or for more information.
