-Cabin #2 (Mainland Side) is being cleaned regularly, following recommended guidelines with recommended products.
-As always, please observe posted restricted areas. Do not enter the purser or wheelhouse areas.
-Social distancing can be difficult to achieve aboard the Whatcom Chief. We encourage all who work or travel on the ferry, to please follow the guidelines on the link below.
We will update this page if/ when conditions change. Stay safe out there!
If you are transporting a trailer or driving 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/or 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.
