Planned Ferry Outage

Wednesday, September 20th @ 9:10 am - 3:00 pm

The Whatcom Chief will be out of service from 9:10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20, for maintenance and to repair the apron control box on the Gooseberry Point ferry terminal facility. Note this outage occurs one hour earlier than our regular outage timeframe; please plan accordingly.

  • The last morning run from the Gooseberry Point side will be 8:30 a.m., and the last morning run from the Lummi Island side will be 9:00 a.m.
  • To fully complete the maintenance and repair, no additional runs will be made after the 9:00 a.m. run from Lummi Island.
  • Due to the complex nature of this repair, the dock will be pinned, and no ferry runs can be made during the repair. This includes emergency vehicles.
  • This maintenance and repair are weather-dependent, and the times and/or date may change if necessary. If schedule changes occur, updates will be posted at

The Whatcom County Public Works Department would like to thank everyone for their cooperation and patience during this necessary inspection and maintenance.
