Hey guys,

I'll be renting a place in Boca Grande for Thanksgiving week. I've searched around quite a bit and wanted to know what the best bet for on-island boat ramps are. I saw that Uncle Henry's has a ramp for $20 a day which beats taking the boat off island and having to repay the toll. Are there any other ramps that the public can use on-island? How about those ramps by the Pink Elephant or by the Marina on the back-side by the helicopter pad?

Any help would be appreciated!

The Innlet witch is owned by the gasprilla inn has a ramp but its kind of pricey. The ramp by the pink is also owned by the inn but that is for only a few local guides on it island. Where are you staying on the island?

You could launch at the county ramp just before the toll bridge for free, drive the boat over in the water, and then bring your truck & trailer over on the island.

Were renting a house on the southwest side (Boca Grande Shores). It does not have any sort of ramp access so I'm looking elsewhere on the island for that.

If you are a florida resident, you can also get a parking permit to leave your vehicle at that ramp for free if that could work out. Just leave your truck and trailer there the whole time. Not much need for a truck on Boca Grande since it isn't that big or much to do. http://www.charlottecountyfl.com/CommunityServices/ParkingPermitApp.pdf Might be too short of notice but if you call and fax in the app, they have gotten it out to me pretty quickly before.
