Consolidation Could Hurt Carteret County Ferry Captains

Posted: Updated:

Small ferry operators in Carteret County are worried a new change might put them out of business.

The National Park Service plans to consolidate ferry providers to just one company for all trips to Cape Lookout and Shackleford Banks.

Those islands are part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore and are only accessible by boat.

Right now, eight passenger ferry services are authorized to make that trip.

But some of them believe awarding only one contract, worth 1.5 million dollars, will shut them down.
