On Thursday, Oct. 28, 2021, the Whatcom Chief had main engine issues that caused an emergency service outage. We will update this page as additional information becomes available. We hate having to take the ferry out of service, but for safety reasons this is necessary. We deeply sympathize with everyone who is impacted by this outage. If you have concerns about this emergency outage and would like to share those with us, email your concerns to us at [email protected].
