The Jamestown-Scotland Ferry operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including major holidays.
Currently, the salon area/restrooms aboard the Jamestown-Scotland ferries remain closed as VDOT continues to protect the health of the traveling public and our staff. A portable restroom that is accessible 24 hours a day is located on both the Surry and Jamestown docks. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
