Ocracoke-mainland ferries to run limited schedule Thursday

By on October 10, 2018

The ferries running between Ocracoke and the mainland will make one round trip Thursday morning before temporarily shutting down operations to prepare for the arrival of remnants from Hurricane Michael.

The Ocracoke-Cedar Island and Ocracoke-Swan Quarter routes will run on the following schedules Thursday morning:

  • Cedar Island-to-Ocracoke Ferry will make runs at 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
  • Ocracoke-to-Cedar Island Ferry will make runs at 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
  • Ocracoke-to-Swan Quarter Ferry will make a run at 7 a.m. and then return to Ocracoke at 10 a.m.

After completing their runs, the vessels will be secured at their respective terminals until the storm passes. Officials with the North Carolina Ferry Division will announce when the ferries will resume operations.

The Hatteras Inlet route will operate on a normal schedule, but may have to suspend operations if conditions warrant.

The state’s ferries do not run during potentially unsafe weather for the safety of passengers and crews.

Other routes will likely be impacted by the weather conditions. Updates will be available on Twitter, or calling the terminals on the route drivers are planning to travel.
