Ferry Passengers Should Use Caution on Ramps During Dry Dock Low Tides

Lower than normal spring tides will cause steep inclines on the ferry ramps over several days of dry dock. As a result, some passengers may need help boarding the passenger ferry. Please do ask for assistance if you need it—crew members are ready to help. To flag down a crew member, please walk to the end of the terminal’s main ramp and stop before the apron section (see image). Our crew will come to you and help you board the vessel.

We ask that anyone traveling during the low tides exercise extreme caution when using the ramps. Your safety is always our highest priority.
