Statue Cruises expands to 140 harbor tours a week

In anticipation of the reopening of the Statue of Liberty on July 4, Statue Cruises is expanding its daily Statue of Liberty Harbor Tours, giving visitors even more opportunities to enjoy the closest views of the Statue of Liberty now. With up to 20 departures a day, seven days per week, the tours offer visitors and locals exceptional flexibility and choice. Statue Cruises has a tour to fit everyone’s schedule.

Statue Cruises COO, Mike Burke, is pleased to announce the increased tour offerings to serve visitor needs when there are so few convenient options for quality sightseeing in New York Harbor.

Passengers experience the closest possible views of famed New York City landmarks and may interact with National Park Service Rangers on-board. Rangers will sail on every harbor tour to lend their valuable expertise to passengers. This initiative brings well-trained rangers on-deck and on-hand to lend their valuable expertise to passengers. Designed to enhance the educational aspect of the experience, the rangers personally engage with passengers by assisting with inquiries and sharing their expert knowledge.

The National Park Service Rangers make the cruise more memorable for passengers. Burke states, “Visitors not only enjoy the closest views of the Statue of Liberty but they learn about the National Monument from the experts themselves.”

Sites include the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the 9-11 Memorial, the South Street Seaport, Governors Island and the Brooklyn Bridge, among others. The hour-long tours depart from Battery Park at the foot of Manhattan every 30 minutes, seven days a week from 9:00am-5:00pm.

Tickets for the narrated sightseeing tours are $24.00 (adults); $17.00 (seniors) and $12.00 (children). Tours depart daily from Battery Park at the foot of Manhattan. Prior to embarking, passengers can purchase tickets online at, by phone at 201-604-2800, or at the seawall in Battery Park. For more information, please visit
