Statue of Liberty cruise - Length of time?

Hi Everyone,

we have a pass to a cruise with statue cruises in battery park and I wanted to check what the length of the cruise is time wise?

Just trying to roughly plan out things to do and need rough times :)

Statue cruises doesn't do cruises.;). They are transportation to the statue. Are you going to the statue? Do you have a ticket that's dated and timed or are you doing this with a NY Pass or some other pass? If it's a pass, timing is anyone,s guess. Look on the

Statuecruises.com

Website for FAQ and/or planning your visit for estimated times.

Ah that makes perfect sense ;)

Well we wanted to see the statue but we are not fussed about going inside...No we dont, we have a NY pass and are supposed to go to the kiosk and get tickets when we get there... I have had a look but although it shows a schedule it doesnt say how long it takes to get there .... hoping the queues wont be horrendous too on a Monday afternoon..

why don't you just take the staten island ferry? Its free, you will have awesome views of the SOL and it runs every 30 minutes.

How do you get tickets and is it usually busier than statue cruises do you know?

You don't need tickets, it is a free ferry that runs between Manhattan and Staten Island, we took it very late at night and it was great to see everything all lit up, cooled us down as well as it was a very hot sticky evening, you can go any time as well so will be easier to fit in. Not making use of your New York pass though.

If you don't want to see anything on Staten Island then you just get off and walk round to get the next ferry back.
