A trip to NYC can't be complete without visiting Lady Liberty! Standing tall in all her glory and magnificence, she is the true spirit of America. I would recommend a cruise so you can truly enjoy her!
The really great day out. Amazing experience on the island. Pretty much just for taking photos with the statue. You can take the ferry from South Ferry Station. Don't get tickets from the agents on the street. The sign is pretty clear where you should...More
Visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island independently. Had a great day as did not have to wait too long for the Statue Island Ferry. Easy to use the ferry for the trip but if you want to visit the crown would recommend booking....More

Hi, I believe you can just stay on the ferry, it will take you back. There were plenty of people who didn't get off at Ellis Island. They make announcements to tell you to leave the ferry or stay on if you wish. Hope that... More

From NJ you first go to Ellis Island and then to Liberty Island. Once you land on Liberty Island you need to walk a few minutes from the ferry. Given that around 50-60 minutes.This is from their website, "Sailing time to each island is approximately 15 minutes. If you remain on boat for ride only without visiting either monument, it will be one hour and fifteen minutes. If you visit both islands the time depends on the time you spend on both islands. There can be long waits which can cause delays. Arrive early, especially if you have a time pass reservation."
