Friday Ferry Route Cancellations, Changes

On Friday morning, the North Carolina Department of Transportation said they would run a two-boat schedule for the day.

The NCDOT said that shoaling on the Ocracoke side, from northwest winds, made too challenging of a route for the smaller vessel to maneuver.

Some departures were cancelled. Those are listed below.

From Hatteras: 7 a.m., 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m.

From Ocracoke: 8:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., and 5:30 p.m.
