Ferry Schedule Update

Ferry Schedule Update

Nothing has changed since October 8, but here's the update anyway.

Due to pressing concerns of our readers worried that they have missed a change in the ferry scheduling, we are re-posting the current schedules. 

At this time, Ocracoke remains open only to residents, non-resident property owners, and personnel approved by Hyde County for re-entry. Is that you? Find out here: re-entry priority procedures.
