I thought our readers might like to know the latest talk about ferry service to Ocracoke. Please keep in mind that this is not official news...just what I've been hearing at the bank, stores, and post office.
I understand that the dredge operating in Hatteras Inlet clearing the channel for the ferries has had some problem, and is for the time being unable to open the channel (it was silted up from this recent tropical depression). Consequently, the Hatteras Inlet ferries are not operating (at least that's the talk around the village). Please check with the NC Ferry Division for oficial reports and updated information.
The last word I received is that the Swan Quarter & Cedar Island ferries are operating.
