Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry running on amended schedule
North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division is running
an amended two-boat schedule on the Hatteras-Ocracoke route.
Shoaling on the Ocracoke side is making it difficult for the smaller vessels to maneuver in and out of the dock.
amended schedule will be in place until dredging on the main channel in
Hatteras Inlet, is completed. Dredging operations are scheduled to be
completed by March 31, at which time the division is anticipated to
resume normal operations of this run.
The following departure schedule is currently in place:
The division will continue to monitor traffic demands and additional runs may be added as necessary.
For schedule information, please call the Hatteras terminal at (252) 986-2353 or Ocracoke terminal at (252) 928-1665.
