This town boat ramp, at the end of Pond Street, provides access to Point Judith Pond south of the busy "upper pond" area. However, since the only parking at the site is the paid parking at the marina, this boat ramp is of limited utility to the public.
Once on the water it is a short paddle from here to numerous rock islands, "the Hummocks," and "Whaley's Pots." Throughout Point Judith Pond there are many coves to poke into in a kayak or other small boat. The boat traffic in the pond can be busy in the summer, especially along the channel, in the mooring area at the north end of the pond, and most especially at the south end of the pond where the Block Island Ferry and other commercial traffic keeps things busy on the water year round.
On most days the southwest wind fills in across this area in the morning and blows throughout the afternoon, so be prepared for this when planning your trip.
This site provides access to the following water bodies in the Coastal Watersheds (West Bay) watershed: Point Judith Pond.
