LUMMI ISLAND, Wash. — Officials with the Ferry Division of Whatcom County Public Works announced about 10pm today, September 29th, they had suspended service of the passenger-only ferry between Gooseberry Point and Lummi Island.

Officials said service has been suspended for the rest of the night due to high winds and deteriorating weather conditions. Resuming service tomorrow will depend on weather conditions.

The National Weather Service currently has a wind advisory in effect through 6am tomorrow. The advisory is due to expected sustained southeast winds of 20 to 30mph with gusts up to 50mph.

The vehicle ferry, Whatcom Chief, is currently in dry dock for its annual maintenance and has been replaced during that time with a passenger-only ferry.
