    Indian Pass boat ramp

    Is it free to launch there?

    Are there restrictions on time of use. Like, can I launch at 8pm do a little bird watching and leave at 2am?

    Yep, you can do that, but it sure is hard to see them at night!

    Free launch?

    With a 10 knot south wind, does it get very rough in the pass heading over to St Vincent. We'll be in a 18' aluminum boat with shallow sides and shallow draft.

    FREE LAUNCH.

    IN A SMALL BOAT, WITH AN OUTGOING/INCOMING TIDE, YOU'D BETTER MIND YOUR P & Q'S LAUNCHING, CROSSING, AND RECOVERING.

    I believe OD has pics of every ramp twixt West Bay and St Marks. ;)

    OD speaks the truth...that ramp has a CURRENT when the wind is right.

    I always heard that Indian Pass was a tough place to launch, but that ramp looks great. I'm assuming it must be the pass itself that's bad? I can see where it could get nasty in such a narrow pass with so much shallow area.
