|Boating Ramps - Yorke Peninsula|
|2 lanes all tides. Dredged Channel.|
Ramp is concrete with a small raised walkway behind a breakwater.
Can launch most boats easily at any stage of the tide and in any conditions other than possibly a northerly as the waves come straight in at you.
Car parking is excellent.
Cannot be used on low tides as you run out of concrete.

Ramp well protected by two breakwaters.
One floating pontoon allows two trailers at a time, with one or two boats queued in the water on each side.
A wide concrete strip, to the West allows extra trailers to lauch & retrieve without the aid of the pontoons.
There is lighting
A $4 fee applies.
Fee is paid through a ticket machine
Season pass of about $50 per financial year also available.
The car park is quite big, but, fills up at Easter and Christmas.
The channel and the northern side of the protected area, are very silted up.
Very low tides, like say less than 0.2m on the Wallaroo tide chart, can be a bit tricky to get out.
Keep your motors tilted right up, move all your weight forward and stick to the centre of the channel.

|Congested at peak times during holiday periods.|
|You only have 2 1/2hr each side of the tide to get your boat in or out of the water as the channel dries up at low tide now [this is the absolute max as the wind and hight of the tide also makes a differance best to work in the 2hr bracket].Remember the Restricted Area as the Army Proof Range is in the vicinity.|
