Annual Dry Dock:
Each year the ferry connecting Lummi Island, Washington to the mainland, the "Whatcom Chief",
goes out of service to spends time in dry dock. During the Dry Dock Days
the ferry undergoes its annual maintenance. The vessel can be in dry dock
from two to three weeks, depending on the extent of the maintenance required.
To service the island residents and guests, a passenger-only ferry operates
while the Whatcom Chief is in dry dock. Temporary parking is made available
near the Gooseberry Point landing during this time. A nighttime security
guard is on duty at this temporary
mainland parking facility. Temporary parking is also provided on Lummi
Island for those who choose to walk on for the trip to the mainland. See
the Dry Dock schedule below.
The ferry system includes two terminal locations and parking facilities.
A portion of the Gooseberry Point facility is secured from the
Lummi Nation through a lease agreement.
