Your adventure begins with a ferry ride!

There are no bridges to Ocracoke, so getting across the water is part of the fun. Choose between three different routes – driving down the Outer Banks to Hatteras, coming by way of the mainland to Swan Quarter, or through Down East to Cedar Island.  

All the ferries accommodate cars and pedestrians, people and pets. Restrooms and climate-controlled passenger lounges are available on board. Find out more about our North Caroline ferry system through the links below.
