“Pricey, but Fun and convenient!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

$9.25 each way. Luckily kids 12 and younger were free for the summer! The shuttles in Manhattan, were convenient, but we were never able to get a return shuttle, and ended up walking many many blocks back to the ferry at night.

Quick and frequent rides back forth from NJ and NY and free bus rides on the NY side to take you all over the city.

“The best way to visit manhattan !”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

I took the ferry with a friend on our first trip to Times Square and it was an extremely nice experience. It was very easy to navigate with the tickets and where to brings you. It was clean and a quick but nice ride. Inexpensive and nice experience to add to our NYC trip

“Best view of the city”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Loved our trip to the city. To avoid the traffic we decided to visit the NYC by waterway. Great experience would recommend it and definitely a better alternative then paying tolls and parking in the city. Only negative remark would be that when you are returning late then you would need to get to 12th Ave and 38 street. Its very confusing especially if its your first time (the place is a bit hidden and no signs around).

“Inexpensive way to Manhattan”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

On time, comfortable, minimal expense. The terminal to come back from Manhattan to NJ is very nice. It's loaded with security and has televisions, newsstands with goodies, and is inside, heated and cooled.
