2:30 P.M. UPDATE: All Ocracoke Island ferry operations have resumed normal operations
All Ocracoke Island ferry operations have been suspended due to dense fog and limited visibility as of Tuesday morning, January 16, per an update from the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division. This includes all three Ocracoke Island ferry routes: Hatteras-Ocracoke, Ocracoke-Swan Quarter, and Ocracoke-Cedar Island.
Ferry service will resume once weather conditions and visibility improve.
