Ellis Island is open every day except the fourth Thursday in November (Thanksgiving) and December 25. Weather can influence the ability of the ferries to run. Please check out Twitter, or look for alerts on our website in the event of inclement weather. To enjoy both Ellis and Liberty Islands with ample time, plan to be on a Statue City Cruises Ferry that departs from The Battery, NY, or Liberty State Park, NJ before 1:00 P.M.
