Cape Cod offers more than 200 water access points for boats small and large. Below are listed upper Cape Cod locations where boats can be launched directly from trailers as well as places where a small boat can be carried in by hand. Our beach pages show other places appropriate for launching and using small boats. Cape Cod boaters should pay close attention to tides. Access at some ramps may be limited to high tides. Some sites are open to residents only. Others are open to the public but may require a daily fee. Check with town offices for specific information. Weather conditions can change quickly. Be prepared and check the marine forecast before heading out.
