This is one of the public ramps located all the way down the chain of islands. A great location, with very limited parking, a handful. Puts you right in a really nice area of Key West. A lot of the locals like to come out here for sunset, those that live a block or two away from the park.
Great ramp, you just have to take the trailer back to the condo or wherever you are staying. The perfect location is the Simonton Street Boat Ramp, but sand is the issue.
For those larger boat owners who wish to dump in here on the south part of Key West, you can be assured that there is no worse Boat Ramp. It is a Perfect Location, however the sand keeps it so bad you cannot even pull up a waverunner. The private marinas are better or go over to the city ramp off roosevelt boulevard. What is the best Boat Ramp for Key West, anywhere there is no sand! For those without a boat, go to the Oceanside Marine Park and snorkel, it is super.
Forget about this ramp except for sunset viewing! Small boats and waverunners only here and forget about the weak parking situation. I have found that renting a boat is much easier in Key West, as there are much fewer boater friendly hotels. Not true in Key Largo or Islamorada, where boater friendly hotels are everywhere and they all have Boat Ramps right on the resort property.
Ok Florida Travel Commander. I will tell him about the mile marker ten ramp. He has been so happy with the cooler weather and Lower Keys Fishing for the yellowtail snapper fish. He was outside fishing for a long time on Sunday.
