The Whatcom Chief will be out of service from 10:10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10, for repairs of the Lummi Island docking facilities. The work will include fabrication, welding, and other specialized repairs. 

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our travelers,” Ferrymaster Rich Hudson said. “Scheduling these repairs is tricky because they must be done during dry and relatively warm weather.” 

In summary:

  • The Lummi Island Ferry will be out of service Wednesday, March 10, from 10:10 a.m. – 3 p.m. 
  • The last morning run from the Gooseberry Point side will be 9:50 a.m. and the last morning run from the Lummi Island side will be 10 a.m.  
  • No additional runs will be made to clear the docks after the last posted run time. 
  • The repair outage must start on time; travelers should plan accordingly for island travel. 

 Repair activities are weather-dependent, and the times and/or date may change.  If schedule changes occur, updates will be posted at www.whatcomcounty.us/ferry

 The Public Works Department would like to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and patience during these necessary repairs.
