There are actually 3 ferries that service Tangier Island: from Reedville, Va (west side); from Onancock, Va (east side); and from southern Maryland. Suggest you call Reedville ferry office to explore off season options.

Unfortunately because of the size of the crowds, we don't allow dogs on the weekends. During the week we are more flexible. Give us a call beforehand and we let you know what to expect. Thanks
