I have a 21 foot cc. I use the Somers Point Municipal ramp (Kennedy Park). I allways have to monitor the tide. Anything less than 2 hours either side of the low tide is no good, not enough water.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a better ramp in this area.

This is going back a couple of years but there is a public boat ramp in Strathmere that has served me well at any tide. There is one road that runs along the bay. The ramp is at the end of it.

There is also a free public ramp on ocean drive between Ocean City and Strathmere. It puts you about 300 yards from the Inlet. Be careful the inlet is shallow.

Thanks for the replies.

I think I will look into the Ocean City Municipal ramp. Is it okay at low tide?.

The ramp at Corsons Inlet is nice but the Inlet is hairy.

The Absecon ramp sounds nice but I would like to use one acloser, plus I'm used to entering the Ocean through the Great Egg Inlet.

JLEO,
The free ramp between Ocean City and Strathmere is no longer in use. The State Rangers closed it off to force people to use the "pay only Ramp" at Corson's Inlet State Park which is next to the bridge on the way out to Strathmere. I thought I would save you the trouble of having to back out of there when you discovered the barricade up. Strathmere's ramp and Whale Creek ramp down the road are still free.

Shady river just outside MaysLanding going towards Ocean City on 539. Takes about 15 minutes to run out to the power plant at rt 9. Good people and nice ramp.

OC Municipal Ramp at Tennessee Ave. has been good for me the last few years even at low tide.
I launch my 21'er there quite frequently. The ramp to the right facing the bay is deeper during low water. ;)

The muni in OC is still a little tough on low tide make sure you have some chocks for the truck or you'll slide in because the ramp is loose stone and you have to go pretty far down the ramp to get her on the trailer at dead low. OC is the reason I have a keel guard on my vessel ;)

It depends where you are going once you get to the ocean, but the Absecon ramp has a newly dredged channel, is great at any tide and less than 15 minutes from the AC Bell bouy, no slow speed zones.

It looks like the state will keep it free this year and a left turn on the ICW puts you in Great Bay and Grassy channel real quick.

It just might be worth a look see.
