Gulf Islands National Seashore (Florida) | BOAT RAMPS


While there are only two physical boat ramps in the Florida unit of Gulf Islands National Seashore, if you have a hand-paddled watercraft such as a canoe or kayak, if you can carry it to the water, you can launch it. There is no park rule requiring that hand-paddled watercraft be launched only at the official boat ramps, though the ramps do make things easier.

Okaloosa Area Boat Ramp
Hand-paddled watercraft only

Johnson Beach Boat Ramp
Mainly for hand-paddled watercraft. Small boats can launch, but not advised to do so.
