Mayport Boat Ramp

Atlas#  3   Area of Town: Beaches and Intracoastal
4870 Ocean St. (Map It)

 

Mayport boat ramp is used almost exclusively by boaters heading offshore and to the Mayport jetties for fishing. It is the largest ramp in Duval County and can handle the largest trailerable boats. Some shoaling has been reported just off the base of the ramp, however this is only a problem for the largest boats at very low tides. Recent improvements have alleviated many of the problems of overcrowding, although parking is still tight on busy weekends. Swift currents make loading and unloading boats challenging during extreme conditions. The sometimes difficult water conditions and crowds may intimidate less experienced boaters who may use Intracoastal (4) or Oak Harbor (8) ramps.
