Lummi Island Ferry passengers may have noticed gravel trucks making trips to and from the island in the last few days. Drivers can expect to see gravel trucks on the ferry through April 1 as we prepare to chip seal county roads on the island this summer. The work is weather dependent, and will likely take place starting in June or July 2020. We will add more information as we get closer to the start of this project.
If you are transporting a trailer or driving a vehicle with a long overhang past the rear axles, we strongly suggest you travel aboard the Whatcom County ferry at a tide no lower than 4 feet.
Tides lower than 4 feet produce an approach angle too steep to be corrected by ramp adjustment and damage to your trailer or vehicle and/or our equipment may occur.
Be advised, tide restrictions for weight also apply. We ask that you take both weight and length past rear axles into account before traveling aboard the Whatcom County ferry.
