Seastreak does not offer senior discounts.
Yes! We are happy to offer discounted books for students commuting to the city for classes, or an internship. In order to be eligible there is paperwork that must be filled out by the student, and school to verify they are a full time student. If a student will be using the pass to commute to an internship, they will also need a copy of their acceptance letter to the internship program (in addition to the school verification). The paperwork can be picked up and handed in at the Atlantic Highlands office. Student ticket books can be purchased only in Atlantic Highlands.
Seastreak offers complimentary parking at its Highlands and Atlantic Highlands terminals. In New York City, you must park in a provided parking garage or lot as the city does not offer parking at its docks. We do not provide parking in Jersey City or Hoboken.
Please be considerate of others when you park and do not block others in or park illegally. If you block someone’s car in and they return before you do, you will be towed at your expense.
Atlantic Highlands Lot: Commuter parking is located on your left and right as you come down First Ave. towards the Seastreak office. There is additional parking in the small lot located next to the Seastreak Ticket Office. Overnight parking, including long-term, is allowed in the fenced-in Seastreak lot across the street from the ticket office. All other parking lots are municipal parking (not Seastreak property), and there is absolutely no overnight parking permitted in them, regardless of snow removal or not. Cars left overnight in the municipal lots can be subjected to towing and/or ticketing by the Atlantic Highlands Police Department at the owner’s expense.
Highlands Lot: Overnight parking is allowed in the overnight lot, located at 348 Shore Drive, only. All cars parked overnight in the lot located at 325 Shore Drive will be towed at the owners expense. If you are planning to leave you car overnight at 325 Shore Drive, please utilize the Sunset Valet service at 732-513-5686 for long-term parking.
Please know that in times of heightened security or extreme weather conditions, local authorities may be forced to remove your vehicle from all parking areas and where overnight parking is normally permitted.

Seastreak ferries are passenger ferries and are not equipped to carry vehicles. Bicycles are allowed. There is a $5 charge and the bikes are kept on the outside decks.
Unless otherwise noted, the Captain of each vessel will determine if priority boarding will be utilized based upon the volume of customers observed to be waiting to board a given departure. If priority boarding is required, ticket book holders will be boarded first. Of these, 40-trip ticket book holders will be first to board, followed by 10-trip ticket book holders.
In order for 40-trip and 10-trip ticket book holders to participate in priority boarding, you must present your ticket book cover along with your ticket. In the absence of a ticket book cover, customers with 40-trip and 10-trip tickets will be boarded next along with customers holding other ticket types.
No one-way or round-trip tickets will be sold for priority boarded departures until all ticket holders are boarded.
