The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry System will be resuming its regular schedule between Cedar Island, Ocracoke and Swan Quarter on Tuesday, Dec. 24.

The routes were running a reduced schedule due to shoaling concerns in the Bigfoot Slough ferry channel.

The regular schedule is as follows:

    Ocracoke to Cedar Island: 7 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m.
    Cedar Island to Ocracoke: 6:30 and 10 a.m., 4 p.m.
    Ocracoke to Swan Quarter: 9 a.m., 1 and 7 p.m.
    Swan Quarter to Ocracoke: 10 a.m., noon and 4 p.m.

This will be the regular winter schedule for these routes through May 18, 2020.
