ferries

 

We are taking a grip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When we arrive at Cape Hatteras Light house we will proceed south to Myrtle Beach SC. Will my GPS know I might want to take the two ferries enroute?

Just deactivate any avoidances

As long as there are no avoidances set up in your GPS, it should route you along the ferry route since it is the shortest and quickest.

Of course, you will have to check the timetable for the ferries. The GPS routing will "assume" that you drive on the ferry right away and depart.

Also, be aware that the ferry from Hatteras to Ocracoke is free and runs multiple times per time, but the ferries between Ocracoke and the mainland are not free and only run a few times a day and typically require (or at least suggest) reservations in the winter.

I have gone as far as Ocracoke. I have not gone from Ocracoke southward on my bike. And that's a long ferry ride from Ocracoke to the mainland (2 1/2 hours).

You really can't miss the ferry landing in Hatteras.

Just drive until the road ends! smile
