Even if you miss the last ferry to the islands from the mainland, the trip is not entirely lost. Take the Staten Island Ferry for free. When you arrive on Staten Island, you will have to disembark and enter the terminal area to catch the ferry back to the mainland. You will be able to tour the harbour and take great photos of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. This is also a great option for those travelling with small children.
