For the first time ever, Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island has extended its summer hours, which means that guests can now plan a late afternoon departure without having to choose between the islands, giving visitors more flexibility in organizing their trip.
 
This summer, ferries depart Battery Park as late as 5 p.m. and return from the national icons as late as 7 p.m. New Yorkers and visitors alike can take in the Manhattan skyline at sunset, photograph the Statue of Liberty as dusk falls and explore Ellis Island after most visitors have left for the day. The new summer hours also provide an attractive post-work alternative and a pleasant way to take advantage of warm summer evenings.
 
Daily extended hours will be offered through Labor Day with the following schedules:
 
Now through August 25, 2012
•         Last boat departs from Battery Park at 5 p.m.
•         Last boat departs from the Statue of Liberty at 6:45 p.m.
•         Last boat departs from Ellis Island at 7 p.m.
 
August 26-September 3, 2012
•         Last boat departs from Battery Park at 4:30 p.m.
•         Last boat departs from the Statue of Liberty at 6:15 p.m.
•         Last boat departs from Ellis Island at 6:30 p.m.
 
Tickets cost $17 for adults, $14 for seniors and $9 for children ages 5 to 12. Ages 4 and younger cruise for free.
