Tickets can be purchased in advance through our website or in person at the ticket box offices near the ferry departure points in New York City and in New Jersey. Advanced purchases are highly recommended to avoid lines at the ticket offices and the chance that your preferred time will sell out. Your E-Ticket with a timed reservation ensures Priority Check-in and Boarding on the date of your tour.

Security Screening – Visitors to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island must pass through security screening before boarding any ferry.

Audio Tours – Audio Tours are now included with the purchase of every ticket. The audio tours, which complement the National Park Service (NPS) Ranger-led tours on the islands, provide a major enhancement to the visitor experience on both islands..
