About Us

NY Waterway is the fastest and easiest way to and from Manhattan.

Since 1986, NY Waterway ferries have carried more than 200 million passengers and provided safe, fast and convenient transportation.

Across more than a dozen routes spanning the Hudson River, East River and New York Harbor, NY Waterway ferries link communities across New Jersey and to Downtown and Midtown Manhattan. With open-air decks and modern terminals, a NY Waterway commute offers stunning skyline views and comfort throughout the trip.

We operate the largest ferry and excursion fleet in New York Harbor, but we remain a family business with personal attention to service and amenities. You are treated like family from the moment you step into our terminals and onto one of our boats.
