Tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood in the Bourne village of Pocasset, this small, paved public boat ramp offers a place to launch kayaks, paddleboards, and shallow-draft boats. From here, the upper western shore of Buzzards Bay is yours to explore – whether it’s a scenic salt marsh paddle on the Pocasset River or a day of fishing and picnicking on Little Bay and the waters off Wings Neck.
This boat ramp is located close to neighboring homes. Please respect private property and obey posted parking regulations.
Habitats & Wildlife
This stretch of the Pocasset River’s shoreline is largely developed. But if you hop in a kayak and travel a short distance from here, you’ll find beautiful natural treasures to discover.
Less than a mile up the Pocasset River past a railroad bridge, the shoreline transitions to rich salt marshes teeming with wildlife. Weave through the marsh’s winding inlets to search for herons, egrets, and ducks feeding among the shallow waters.
Just north of the river’s mouth lies Little Bay Conservation Area and Monks Park. These sandy shores are a peaceful stop to rest before returning to the Pocasset River ramp. Make sure to check wind and tide conditions before you go, as these open waters can get choppy.
