Thanks to successful dredging, the Pamlico Sound ferry routes between Ocracoke, Swan Quarter and Cedar Island will return to their full schedules on Wednesday, April 21.

A test run with the M/V Swan Quarter today revealed that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ dredging efforts made vast improvements to ferry channel depths and widths in Bigfoot Slough, allowing safe passage for all of the state’s ferries.

The full schedule beginning Wednesday, April 21, weather permitting, is as follows:

  • Ocracoke to Cedar Island:  7:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
