Some Cedar Island and Swan Quarter
ferry runs are suspended today  

The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division suspended the 6:30 a.m. run from Ocracoke to Swan Quarter on Thursday morning, as well as the 7 a.m. runs from both Ocracoke and Cedar Island because of extremely low water in the Pamlico Sound.

Several more runs have been suspended for today, including the 9:30 a.m. run out of Swan Quarter, the 10:30 a.m. runs from both Ocracoke and Cedar Island. Additionally, there will be no 2 p.m. run out of Ocracoke or 5 p.m. departure out of Cedar Island.
The following runs will take place:
•    From Swan Quarter, the 4 p.m. departure to Ocracoke;
•    From Ocracoke, the 12:30 p.m. run to Swan Quarter and the 5 p.m. run to Cedar Island; and
•    From Cedar Island, the 2 p.m. run to Ocracoke.

All runs at these three ferry terminals will resume normal schedules Friday as conditions on the sound improve. For further information call the Ocracoke terminal at (252) 928-5311, Cedar Island at (252) 225-7411 and Swan Quarter at (252) 926-6021.
