Dry dock will begin on Thursday, September 6, 2018. The Whatcom Chief is due to return to its regular schedule midday on Thursday, September 27, 2018. As always, the return date is tentative and dependent on the scale of repairs and work required both in the shipyard and at the docks. Further confirmation of this return to service date will occur as dry dock progresses.
Copies of the Passenger-Only Ferry Schedule, and the Lummi Island Passenger Shuttle Van Schedules, including the pickup route, are available at http://www.whatcomcounty.us/382/Ferry. The dry dock parking plan will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
