Statue of Liberty?

Please can someone tell me how long the boat takes to get to SOL? I want to go but get very sea sick (even on a mill pond!). Are there different routes/trips that can be taken? Thanks

Trip is quite fast 10-15 minutes at most. There is only one company that runs the boats for the park service.

You can see it clearly from the land. It should not be a problem. If you want to visit, book with


This way you can visit the SOL and Ellis Island.

There is the free Staten Island ferry which travels quite close and is free. The Circle Line has different routes.

We took the Staten Island ferry. It was a very enjoyable ride and we were able to get some great photos of the Statue of Liberty with a telephoto lens. Have fun! :)
