Annual Dry Dock

Annual Maintenance
Each year the Whatcom Chief spends time in dry dock in order to undergo annual maintenance. The vessel can be in dry dock from 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the extent of the maintenance needed. A passenger-only ferry operates while the Whatcom Chief is in dry dock. Additional, temporary parking is provided on Lummi Island for dry dock.
