MANNS HARBOR — With the kids back in school, temperatures falling and days getting shorter, the annual transition to off-season schedules will begin next week for the North Carolina Ferry System. Over the next six weeks, several gradual changes will occur on four of the ferry system’s seven routes, including Pamlico Sound routes. Both the Cedar Island-Ocracoke and Swan Quarter-Ocracoke routes began their off-season schedules Tuesday. Both routes will run three round trips daily.

The Cherry Branch and Pamlico River routes do not change seasonally, and the Currituck-Knotts Island route remains on the same schedule throughout the school year.

All schedules are subject to change due to weather or mechanical issues. Follow @NCDOT_Ferry on Twitter for real-time schedule updates.
