Traveling with Long Overhang past Rear Axles Notice

If you are transporting a trailer or diving a vehicle with a long overhang past the rear axles, we strongly suggest you travel aboard the Whatcom County ferry at a tide no lower than 4 feet.

Tides lower than 4 feet produce an approach angle too steep to be corrected by ramp adjustment and damage to your trailer or vehicle and our equipment may occur.

Be advised, tide restrictions for weight also apply. We ask that you take both weight and length past rear axles into account before traveling aboard the Whatcom County ferry.

Please see the 2018 Tide Letter located on the left side of this page for more information.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT RESERVATIONS!  This is a First-Come, First-Served ferry. (Schedule)
