Cedar Island-Ocracoke and Swan Quarter-Ocracoke Ferry Runs Go to Summer Schedule on May 21 Friday, May 17, 2013

RALEIGH — Warmer weather means increased travel demands for the N.C. Department of Transportation ferries. To accommodate that demand, the routes between Ocracoke and both Cedar Island and Swan Quarter go to their summer schedule beginning Tuesday, May 21. The number of trips between Cedar Island and Ocracoke increases from four to six a day in each direction, and the service between Swan Quarter and Ocracoke doubles to four daily trips each way.

The summer schedule will remain in effect until Sept. 30:

Cedar Island-Ocracoke route:

  • Departing Cedar Island at 7 a.m., 10, 11:30, 1 p.m., 4 and 5:30; and
  • Departing Ocracoke at 7:30 a.m., 10, 1 p.m., 3, 4:30 and 8.

Swan Quarter-Ocracoke route:

  • Departing Swan Quarter at 7 a.m., 10, 1 p.m. and 4:30; and
  • Departing Ocracoke at 6:30 a.m., 9:30, 12:45 p.m. and 4.

The Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry route went to its summer schedule earlier this month, and will add even more daily trips on May 21 as well. The Currituck-Knotts Island ferry makes its switch to a summer schedule in early June.
