Reach NYC by Ferry
- NY Waterway
Commuters and locals cross the river on NY Waterway’s ferry daily, but the trip is so much more than “point A to point B.” The NY Waterway, accessible up and down the Hudson County coastline, takes visitors on a skyline-view trip across the Hudson River without the traffic and stress. Upon arrival, free shuttles take visitors across Manhattan, which makes this relaxing ferry ride a practical and enjoyable trip. Hudson County’s ferry ports include Weehawken, Hoboken, and Jersey City. Tickets & more info here.
Jersey City Departures
- Statue Cruises
Skip the NYC lines and visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island with a ferry ride from Jersey City instead. This hassle-free alternative includes roundtrip ferry transportation from Liberty State Park. You can easily park, buy a ticket, then head off with Statue Cruises—the only authorized official provider of tickets and tours to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Tickets & more info here.
- Smooth Sailing Celebrations
Watch the NYC skyline sparkle from the deck of Smooth Sailing Celebrations’ luxurious Hudson River yachts, sailboats, and catamarans. Smooth Sailing Celebrations, a Hudson County business, offers over 45 luxe yachts for private events. Vessels depart from Weehawken, Jersey City, and Hoboken, before traveling up and down the Hudson River. Tickets & more info here.
