Service[edit]

SeaStreak[edit]

SeaStreak catamarans operate daily to the Raritan Bayshore in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Most journeys originate at the East 34th Street Ferry Landing with peak hour shuttle service to/from Battery Park City Ferry Terminal. After calling at Pier 11/Wall Street boats continue through The Narrows to terminals at Atlantic Highlands or Highlands.[3]

Seasonal excursions and sightseeing trips include service to Sandy Hook, Yankee Stadium, the Hudson Valley, and Martha's Vineyard.

SeaStreak formerly operated weekday commuter service to Rockaway, Queens.[4][5] The service began in November 2012 in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which heavily damaged subway infrastructure in Queens and Brooklyn, but was discontinued in October 2014 once all repair work had been completed.[6]

NY Waterway[edit]

Commuter service runs to Belford Harbor on the Raritan Bayshore.[7][8]

New York Water Taxi[edit]

New York Water Taxi operates the IKEA Express Shuttle to the IKEA store in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Passengers who make a purchase of a certain amount ride the ferry for free.[9]

New York Beach Ferry[edit]

New York Beach Ferry operates seasonal summer weekend/holiday service to Riis Landing, near Fort Tilden at Jacob Riis Park in the Gateway National Recreation Area.[10]

NYC Ferry[edit]

Pier 11 Wall Street is the terminal for all NYC Ferry routes[11]. In 2016, the city drew up plans for routes to Bay Ridge, Rockaway, Governors Island, Astoria, Lower East Side, and Soundview.[12][13] On May 1, 2017, NYC Ferry's Rockaway route started operations, and NY Waterway's East River route was transferred over to NYC Ferry operation.[14] The Bay Ridge route began on June 1, a month later,[15] and the Astoria route began on August 29 of the same year.[16] The route to Soundview opened on August 15, 2018,[17] followed by the Lower East Side route two weeks later, on August 29.[18]
