The Easiest Way To Get Away

Governors Island is a 172 acre island in the heart of New York Harbor. It’s only 800 yards from Lower Manhattan, and even closer to Brooklyn. It is a world unto itself, unique and full of promise.

Governors 1 joins the fleet

Our brand-new, 400-passenger ferry, Governors 1, goes into service on Saturday. It will run every weekend between Manhattan and Governors Island, increasing service to approximately every 20 minutes and making it easier than ever to ship out to your favorite Island. See the new schedule here. Welcome aboard!
