Maintenance & Closures


Occasionally, ferry operations are halted for both scheduled and non-scheduled maintenance and weather-related closures.

Closures and delays in service will be posted at the ferry docks with as much notice as possible.

Scheduled Maintenance

Bi-weekly maintenance will be performed on Tuesdays between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The scheduled two (2) hour maintenance days for 2017 are:

Month Date
 January 3, 17 and 31
 February 14 and 28
 March 14 and 28
 April 11 and 25
 May 9 and 23

 July 4 and 18
 August 1, 15 and 29
 September 12 and 26
October 10 and 24

The two hour maintenance period is an approximation and depending on the nature of the work scheduled at the time, the vessel may resume service earlier or later than advertized without prior notice. Reminders of these outages and whenever possible, advance notice of any additional planned delays or outages will be provided through the ferry alert email system and Twitter (@HICountyFerry).
