The Statue of Liberty up close

After the Liberty Express departs Battery Park, you’ll cruise directly toward the Statue of Liberty. During the boat trip in New York, the guide will give you information about the symbol of freedom. You can also ask the guide any questions you might have about the city. Once near Lady Liberty, the boat will slow down, allowing you to capture a perfect picture. The boat then reverses to sail back to Downtown Manhattan. Along the way, enjoy the views of the skyline.

Eric’s Tip: If you are visiting Downtown Manhattan and want to get a closer look at the Statue of Liberty, this is a perfect combination. The Liberty Express Cruise is the only one of the Circle Line cruises that departs from Battery Park and only takes 45 minutes!
