NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (WPRI) — The Block Island Ferry once again canceled service on Tuesday due to high surf and strong winds.
“Unfortunately, sea conditions have not improved enough for our vessels to safely exit and enter Old Harbor,” a service alert posted Tuesday morning explained.
The Block Island Ferry issued a second service alert Tuesday afternoon canceling high-speed ferry departures on Wednesday.
Traditional ferry service is expected to resume Wednesday with the following adjusted schedule:
|Departing Point Judith||7 a.m.||8:15 a.m.||9 a.m.||11 a.m.||12 a.m.||1 p.m.||3 p.m.||4 p.m.||5 p.m.|
|Departing Block Island||7 a.m.||9 a.m.||9:30 a.m.||11 a.m.||1 p.m.||1:30 p.m.||3 p.m.||5 p.m.||5:30 p.m.|
This is the fourth day in a row that the Block Island Ferry has canceled service. The high-speed and traditional ferry services have been suspended since Saturday, leaving dozens of visitors stranded on the island.
Ferry tickets for Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will still be valid once service resumes, and high-speed ferry tickets can be exchanged at the ticket window for the traditional ferry. Passengers are asked to make the exchange at least 30 minutes prior to their departure.
Those interested in canceling their tickets are asked to email their confirmation number to firstname.lastname@example.org for a full refund.
