One of the greatest parts about living on an island is having easy access to the splendors of the ocean. Whether you like to sail, catch your own fish, or simply love to take in the sights and sounds of the water, having your own boat makes for a fantastic way to experience the best of what Long Island’s natural beauty has to offer. Of course, it’s not enough just to buy a boat- you also need to know where to launch it from and how to come back ashore. There are dozens of boat ramps scattered across the Island, but not every ramp is open to the general public- some are reserved for their respective town’s residents, some charge parking and launching fees, and many can only accommodate vessels up to a particular size. Don’t just assume you can bring your boat anywhere, figure out where the best places for you to put it in the water and pull it back out are located.
