Raleigh - The N.C. Department of Transportation Ferry Division is reminding visitors and businesses that it is operating under its
normal route schedules, and reservations are being accepted for its Cedar
Island-Ocracoke and Swan Quarter-Ocracoke routes again. Service was disrupted
as ferries were kept at their docks while Hurricane Arthur passed by the Outer
Banks late last week, but all seven routes were back at work by July 4.
Because of restrictions on re-entry onto Ocracoke
Island by the Hyde County Emergency Management Department until conditions were
considered safe for everyone, reservations for Sunday's trips from Cedar Island
and Swan Quarter were cancelled. Reservations are now being accepted again.
Information about the ferry routes, schedules and reservations can be found on the Ferry Division website, and you can also make
reservations by calling 1-800-293-3779.
