In May of 2015 I posted information about a proposal to run passenger ferries across Hatteras Inlet.
That proposal led to much discussion on Ocracoke. Many islanders and visitors questioned the plan, wondering how many visitors would take advantage of the service.
On June 29, the Ferry Division unveiled the results of a study conducted to determine the feasibility of initiating passenger ferry service at Hatteras Inlet. The study recommends two 100 passenger ferries that would make eight round trips a day between Hatteras Island and Ocracoke Village.
