Features

boat ramp at Megansett Harbor Landing in North Falmouth

Recently repaved, the boat ramp at Megansett Harbor Landing is a beautiful ramp to launch a boat into Megansett Harbor and Buzzards Bay.

For boaters on Cape Cod, Megansett Harbor Landing is an awesome gateway to Buzzards Bay. The boat ramp is paved, with substantial curbs on both edges. The landing also has a long wooden dock and a floating dinghy dock where small boats can tie up. Plus, kayakers and paddleboarders can launch from here on a paddling adventure on Megansett Harbor’s calm waters.

One of the nice things about Megansett Harbor Landing is its close proximity to lots of recreational areas. Next to the boat ramp lies Megansett Beach, and just across the harbor sits Lawrence Island, which is a great place to explore by kayak.

Habitats & Wildlife

Curious explorers young and old come to the dock at Megansett Harbor Landing to look for fascinating marine life. An entire ecosystem thrives right under the salt water’s surface – fish feed on grass shrimp under the dinghy dock and in the eelgrass meadows just beyond the shore. In the skies, watch for ospreys and terns diving into the water to catch their next meal.
