The following trips departing or arriving in Oak Bluffs Thursday, June 13, have been diverted to Vineyard Haven due to weather conditions:

M/V NANTUCKET to Woods Hole 3:45 pm

M/V WOODS HOLE from Woods Hole 4:05 pm

M/V WOODS HOLE to Woods Hole 5:20 pm

The SeaStreak fast ferry, which runs from New Bedford to Oak Bluffs, is also diverting its ferries to Vineyard Haven.

The National Weather Service has predicted heavy rains and winds through the evening, which will likely cause most, if not all, trips in and out of Oak Bluffs to be diverted to Vineyard Haven. The SSA recommends travelers check their website before heading for a terminal.

Additionally, service for the high-speed ferry M/V Iyanough is likely to continue to be affected. Customers should check the Authority’s website for updates throughout the day.
