Statue of Liberty Night Cruise: What you need to know

Statue of Liberty Night Cruise NYC SkylineThe tour starts promptly at 7 PM from Pier 16 at South Street Seaport (between April 1 and October 31st). The area offers stunning views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Lower Manhattan Skyline. So make sure to snap a photo while waiting for the tour to get started.

During the 60-minutes tour, you’ll pass some of the main sights in Lower Manhattan such as the One World  Trade Center, Brookfield Place, and Brooklyn Bridge before arriving at the highlight of the tour, the Statue of Liberty. The boat stays at the landmark for a little while so that everyone is able to take pictures and videos.

Is the Statue of Liberty Night Cruise worth it?

The tour is only an hour-long which is why we think it’s a nice add-on to other boat trips New York City has to offer during the day. Watching the sunset is an unforgettable moment that you shouldn’t miss. If you want to see more than just the Statue of Liberty, make sure to check on other cruises during the day, or at night, as well.

Also, taking a selfie with Miss Liberty is not such a bad thing to do in NYC either. You’ll be able to shoot your photo super close to the Statue of Liberty which already makes this trip worth going.

Tickets for the Statue of Liberty Night Cruise

The tour during sunset to see the Statue of Liberty is super popular which is why we highly recommend booking the tickets in advance online.

Make sure to get there at least 30 minutes before the tour starts to exchange your voucher for the actual ticket. We didn’t know better and waited in line to board the ship but then had to go back to the ticket booth to get our tickets printed out.
