Ferry Procedures

We will make your ferry reservations and email them to you on your booking confirmation along with a ferry confirmation number. You will need to confirm your ferry reservations by calling the ferry office 30 days prior to your arrival date.

Ferry Arrival Confirmation: (910) 457-5003
Ferry Departure Confirmation: (910) 457-5006

Please allow at least 30 minutes to unload luggage at the ferry landing, park your car and purchase your ferry tickets. Upon departure, make sure all luggage is placed at the end of driveway at designated tram pick-up time.

Parking and ferry accommodations are not included in our rental rates. Currently, parking is $9/day. Currently, ferry tickets are $23/adults and $14/children between the ages of 3 and 12. The cost of the ferry includes your tram ride to your accommodations.

When you arrive at the ferry landing, you will need to purchase your tickets and notify the attendant that you have arrived. Be sure to bring your parking ticket with you and do not leave it in your car. It is much easier to pay for the parking upon departure with your parking ticket already in hand then to have to go back to your car and retrieve it before paying.

When you arrive on the island, no one from our rental agency will be at the ferry landing to meet you. Please ask the tram operator who is greeting arriving passengers or at the ticket office about your tram assignment. You are responsible for claiming your luggage (as you would at a baggage claim at the airport) and taking it to your specific tram.

How to Pack

Bald Head Island's baggage handling system is similar to that of an airline, so guests should pack as if they were flying to their destination. When guests arrive at the Indigo ferry landing, they should place their luggage on the baggage racks and make sure an outfitter is aware of their luggage. Nametags are required on all luggage and boxes. Loose items such as open-top bags or boxes, grocery bags, styrofoam coolers, jackets, shoes, tennis rackets, surfboards or fragile items such as video cameras must be hand-carried.

Large, bulky items such as bicycles will require a special cargo ticket that can be purchased at an additional fee when you arrive. These special cargo items will not be transported in trams due to size, sharp edges and grease. Cargo space on the ferry is limited; therefore, it is possible cargo items will not be transported along with passengers. These items may be claimed at the island ferry depot and transported using a golf cart provided with the accommodations, except bikes which must be ridden to the accommodations and may not be transported via golf cart.

Golf Carts

Each home will have available for use at least one golf cart. You must be a licensed driver to operate a golf cart. The Bald Head Island police department does enforce all traffic ordinances and violators will be subject to fines. If the golf cart stops working, we will attempt to have it repaired as soon as possible. If the golf cart cannot be repaired, we will arrange to rent a replacement, subject to availability. Do not let your children drive the golf carts. They are not toys and cost an average of $3,000. Golf carts are to be left at the accommodations at time of departure. You are strictly prohibited to leave the golf cart/s anywhere except at the property to which they belong at check out, and that if the golf carts are left elsewhere, you will be liable for the full value of the cart, should it be lost or damaged, as well as a golf cart retrieval fee, not less than $125 as well as any fines associated with the golf cart.

If additional carts are needed, you may rent carts by the hour, day, or week from Island Passage (910-457-4944).

Rental Homes for Sale
