The boat ramp can be found at the south end of the Poulsbo Marina, next to the Marine Science Center. Use of the boat ramp is FREE of charge for the public. Parking can be found at the Port’s public parking lot, located at 19133 Jensen Way. Parking fees for vehicles with trailers are $5.00 per day and $25.00 per week. If you want to avoid paying for parking, you might get lucky and find street side space up on 3rd Avenue. It’s worth a look!
Please note, there are a few limitations to using the boat ramp. The first is the size of boat that the ramp will accommodate. There is no absolute maximum, but launching and retrieving boats greater than twenty-eight (28) feet could be a challenge. How big a boat you can launch is directly related to the tide cycle. The lower the tide, the smaller the boat needs to be. At a zero tide, the water runs out to the third piling on the boat ramp dock. During extreme low tides, the ramp actually becomes unusable, so have a look at the tide charts before coming down. You’ll be glad you did!
