Coecles Harbor Cruising Guide:
Boat Ramps & Town Landings

Coecles Harbor has a few very good ramps and town landings:  Click on the image below to find out more about each location.


1)  Ram Island Drive West:  This boat ramp is very popular and is great for launching small boats.  The ramp is dirt but you should not have any problems launching boats here.  The landing is accessible from Ram Island Drive 


2)  Burns Road:  The boat ramp at Burns road is located right next to St. Gabrielle Retreat House.  While this is a great place to leave your dinghy and walk to town, you can not launch a boat using a trailer unless you have a four wheel drive car.  There is a wooded ramp leading to a beach.  Shelter Island Kayaks also uses this landing for many of its tours of the harbor.  For a list of local restaurants you can walk to from this ramp click here.  


3)  Congdon Road Town Landing:  This Town Landing and boat ramp is among the best on the island.  This ramp is next to the Shelter Island Town docks inside Congdon's Creek. The boat ramp is perfect for launching any size vessel and has a paved ramp leading into the water.  This is also a great location to bring your dinghy from the anchorage area and walk to some local restaurants.  For a list of local restaurants you can walk to from this ramp click here.  


4) Ram Island Drive East:  Located just before Little Ram Island, this town landing is not ideal for launching a boat.  The landing is great for leaving your dinghy while exploring Little Ram Island and Ram Island.
