The winter schedule on the Chappy Ferry begins on Sunday, Oct. 20 with an increase in service hours. That is, weather permitting, the ferry will begin operation at 6:30 a.m. and operate continuously until 10 p.m., then again from 11 to 11:15 p.m.

Also, beginning on Sunday, Oct. 20, only one ferryboat will be in service. Expect the vehicle waiting line to be longer during the normally busy times. If you remove your trailer hitch there may be just enough additional room on the ferry for your neighbor to get aboard.
