Writer’s note: Because this is an island, if you are getting here by car, the only options are the ferries. The North Carolina DOT operates 3 ferries going to Ocracoke from Hatteras, Cedar Island & Swan Quarter. The one from Hatteras is free and the shortest at 45 minutes, but it is strictly first come, first served. The others are $15.00 per vehicle, range from 2 hours 15 minutes to 2 ½ hours and reservations are suggested.
