Pamlico Sound Ferry Routes Return To Full Schedule Wednesday
The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division has announced it will return to its full schedule on April 21 on Pamlico Sound routes between Cedar Island, Swan Quarter and Ocracoke. The division completed a test run Tuesday with the M/V Swan Quarter to make sure the channel is navigable. It took almost a month for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clear shoaling that was occurring in the ferry channel just outside of Ocracoke’s Silver Lake Harbor.
The full schedule beginning April 21, weather permitting, is as follows:
- Ocracoke to Cedar Island: 7:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Cedar Island to Ocracoke: 7:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Ocracoke to Swan Quarter: 7 a.m., 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
- Swan Quarter to Ocracoke: 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
