In Advance

Ferry tickets may be purchased in advance through the New York Waterways website and mobile app. Please note that your advance purchase does not guarantee you passage on the ferry.

New York Waterways Mobile App

Tickets are available through the New York Waterways mobile app. After downloading the app to your device, select the "buy tickets" tab. Select Hudson River Ferries and enter BMB (Battery Maritime Building) or Pier 6 as your starting point and Governors Island as your destination.

New York Waterways Website

Advanced tickets can be purchased online on the New York Waterways website. When buying tickets through the website, you must first create an account by creating a username and password. Then select Hudson River Ferries, entering either BMB (Battery Maritime Building) or Pier 6 as your starting point and Governors Island as your destination.

In Person

Tickets can be most easily purchased during ferry hours at the ticket booths at Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan and Pier 6 in Brooklyn. Tickets do not generally sell out in advance, but there are often lines to board, so you should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your planned departure.
