Raleigh to Swan Quarter 2hr 54min (yahoo maps) + 2hr 45min Ferry Ride= 5hr 39min and 166miles
Raleigh to Cedar Island 3hr 56min (yahoo maps) + 2hr 15min Ferry Ride= 6hr 11min ride and 201 miles

Swan Quarter would be my route.

Raleigh to Ocracoke via Hwy 64 to Hwy 12 = 269mi and 5hr 56min...not sure if that takes the ferry into count for time though?

Depends on when you want to go. I drive through Hatteras most of the time because the Hatteras/Ocracoke ferry runs hourly(right now) from 5 am to midnight and it's always good to me to cruise 12. Personal preference for me though. If it's a family trip I do CI because We can get to the ferry mid morning and eat or hang out on the ferry, plus my little girls like riding the ferry.

I know

Getting married on Ocracoke and trying to tell friends from Raleigh which way is the closest. I had initially told them Swan Quarter , but was second guessing myself. They have a reservation made for 5:00 on the ferry(Swan Quarter) Thanks

You may want to check departure times. I recently read they are cutting back on the number of trips. You used to be able to make reservations. Might be a good idea to check that also.
