Coastal Georgia Boat ramp Locations

Where can I launch my boat?

Georgia's coastal creeks and rivers consist primarily of mud and sand bottoms. With the current velocities produced by daily tides ranging from 6 to 9 feet, this type of substrate often gives way to erosion creating a steep drop-off at the foot of many boat ramps. In addition, many people use their boat engines to push or load their boats onto their trailer. During low tide, such boat loading practices often accelerate erosion at the foot of boat ramps. Therefore, boaters should take caution when launching boats during low tide periods to be sure that the ramp surface extends our far enough to safely back trailers.

There are many coastal public water access points throughout Coastal Georgia. Each county has several points of access via public boat ramps. The map in this article shows the locations of those boat ramps. Click the icon to get additional information about each individual facility.
