Low tide warnings

Avoid certain routes during low tides so you do not damage your vehicle from scraping or getting caught on the loading ramps. At low tides, some of our loading ramps have a steep slope that causes an extreme angle for:

  • Trucks
  • RVs with a low ground clearance
  • Vehicles towing a trailer

You should also wait for a ferry at high tide for safe clearance for vehicles low to the ground to avoid damage to your vehicle. Below are the routes and low tide warnings.
