Ocean House Marina Boat Ramp

60 Town Dock Rd
Charlestown, RI 02813

About Us:

This boat ramp is at a private marina but can be used by the public for a fee of $20/day. This site provides access to the Kenyon Cove and Fort Neck sections of Ninigret Pond, which feature stunning landscapes and abundant coves for paddle craft to explore. Ninigret Pond is Rhode Island's largest coastal salt pond and offers excellent wildlife viewing possibilities. The area near the Charlestown Breachway (the outlet to the ocean) is dangerous for paddle craft and should be avoided because of both strong currents and heavy boat traffic. There can also be heavy boat traffic near the marinas. Otherwise, the pond is usually a calm and easy place to paddle. 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.

Before planning to launch from this boat ramp it would be a good idea to call the marina (401-364-6040) and confirm the price and parking arrangements.
