Ferry service has been restored to Ocean Beach on Long Island, ending a two week shutdown. 

Officials announced that a tentative agreement has been reached between Fire Island Ferries and the Village of Ocean Beach over the fees to use the docks and terminal. 

The Bay Shore-based ferry company had operated on an expired lease during the pandemic. It halted service on March 8 when negotiations on a new lease agreement broke down. 

Details of the tentative agreement have not been released. 

The ferry is a lifeline for the year-round residents of Ocean Beach.
