One of the few free things you can do in the City. Nice short tour of the harbor. You can easily make the return trip on Staten Island but we chose to stay and tour the area.

Best idea is to buy a New York Pass - gives you access to some great visitor attractions - however Statton Island Ferry is free as is Highline Tour & Grand Central Station - it really depends how long you are staying!
