This concrete boat ramp is on the channel between New Harbor and Trims Pond, at the south end of Great Salt Pond, on Block Island. Be careful about the tidal currents running in and out of Trims Pond, and watch out for boat traffic in the area. This is a popular area for fishing.
Getting to Block Island requires more planning than most other paddling destinations in Rhode Island. Kayaks can be taken on the ferry either on top of a car or without a car. For the latest rates and schedules, and to make reservations, check with the ferry company, Interstate Navigation (see link below). Some of the taxis on the island can carry kayaks so it is usually possible to get a taxi to take you and your kayak and gear from the ferry landing to a put-in elsewhere on the island.
This site provides access to the following water bodies: Great Salt Pond, New Harbor, Trims Pond.
