Statue Cruises Tour NowFeatures National Park Service Rangers

New York, NY – January 17, 2013 – Statue Cruises announces that National Park Service Rangers are now on board their daily harbor tours. As a new initiative, that started on January 13, 2013, the well-trained rangers will be on-deck and on-hand to lend their valuable expertise to passengers. Designed to enhance the educational aspect of the experience, the rangers will personally engage with passengers by assisting with inquiries and sharing their expert knowledge.

The daily Statue of Liberty Harbor Tours grant up-close views of famed New York City landmarks from the unique perspective of the city’s waterways. Iconic landmarks viewed during the tour include the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the 9-11 Memorial, the South Street Seaport, Governors Island and the Brooklyn Bridge, among others. Departing every 30 minutes daily from 10:00am to 4:45pm, passengers can now expect to interact with uniformed rangers during their hour-long tour.

Statue Cruises COO, Mike Burke, believes the addition of the National Park Service Rangers will make the cruise more memorable for passengers. Burke states, “Visitors will not only enjoy the closest views of the Statue of Liberty but they will be able to learn about the National Monument from the experts themselves.”

Tickets for the narrated sightseeing tours are $24.00 (adults); $17.00 (seniors) and $12.00 (children). Tours depart daily from Battery Park at the foot of Manhattan. Prior to embarking, passengers can purchase tickets online at www.statuecruises.com, by phone at 201-604-2800, or at the seawall in Battery Park.
