Fares and Ticket Information

What Does My Ticket Include?

Ticket fares include round trip ferry passage to the park.

Once in the park, enjoy access to visitor amenities and self-guided activities. Tickets are not timed, and you can take any ferry to return. Due to precautions around COVID-19, we encourage you to take the next available return ferry (allowing 2.5 hours on the island) to prevent crowding. Allow at least 4 hours out of your day for your visit including the ferry ride. Remember to arrive at Long Wharf North at least 20 minutes before your ferry departure to allow time for boarding.
