Cocoa Beach Boat Ramp
Thousand Island Area

Ramp Road
Cocoa Beach, FL 32931

On the west side of Cocoa Beach is a unique saltwater habitat called The Thousand Islands. A mixture of shallow water grassflats and mangrove lined canals makes this a small fisherman's paradise in the middle of a growing population of residence in the heart of Cocoa Beach.

An angler can invest days and weeks of fishing the immediate area for several types of fish. Plugging along the banks in the early morning for snook and then moving toward the shallow water tributaries for redfish and spotted sea trout is a great way to spend day and is often very productive for the saltwater enthusiast. You'll find that during the year and it's changing seasons that the Thousand Island area will hold many other species from the jumping ladyfish and tarpon to the hard hitting jack crevelle and the lowly black drum foraging slowly on the shallow sandbars.

Kayaking has exploded over the last few years with many groups of ecotourist looking for manatees, alligators and birds that thrive in this area. Canoing and Kayaking are valid ways of fishing this area, but for the tourist a fishing charter is always the most productive way to put some fish in the boat.

Boat Ramp and Meeting Information

[Google] Banana River Boat Ramp- Merritt Island's Kelly Park is a great starting point for the Banana River Lagoon and Port Canaveral. Targeted species in the shallow water grassflats in the Banana River Lagoon are redfish, sea trout and snook. Offshore of Port Canaveral, you'll find all the deep sea fishing an angler can handle. The ramps are not usually crowded and the park is well lit and maintained by the Brevard County Parks and Recreation. Directions to this ramp are from the Orlando Airport.

[Google] Cocoa Beach Ramp - Cocoa Beach's best little secret behind the Cocoa Beach Playhouse and inside the thousand island area. Beautiful little ramp in a residential area of world famous Cocoa Beach.

[Google] Indian River Boat Ramp - Titusville's Indian River Lagoon area is a great fishery and Kennedy Point Park is a good place to start. Accessing the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge area and further toward the north is miles of presteen waterways leading into the Mosquito Lagoon and beyond.

[Google] Mosquito Lagoon Boat Ramp - Florida's east coast mecca for inshore fishermen pursuing big redfish and gator sized trout. The Mosquito Lagoon has been on every outdoors fishing channel and TV and now you have the instructions on how to get to the main boat ramp from the Orlando Airport.

[Google] Sebastian Inlet Boat Ramp - Sebastian Inlet State Park is located on both side of the inlet itself and host some of the best fishing areas in Florida including the inlet itself, the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon to the west. World famous for it's snook fishing it also has redfish, sea trout and some tarpon fishing.

[Google] Port Canaveral Boat Ramps - There are two ramps at Port Canaveral but Lagooner Fishing Guides only meet their customers at the Freddie Patrick Park near Grills Seafood Restaurant across from Sunrise Marina.

Ramp Road Cocoa Beach Florida

Ramp Road Boat Ramp and Launch
Cocoa Beach, FL
Banana River & Thousand Islands

There are several ramps to the Banana River and during big blows and special occassion, we run our trips out of the Cocoa Beach Thousand Island area at Ramp Road.

It's not a very big park, maybe the size of a football field or so. But it's unique location puts it in an area closer to some of the better fishing during some of the cooler times of the year or when there's alot of fresh water from the rainy season.

One of the funniest things about ramp road is that it literally ends at the ramp and before they put up a barrier it was common for night time drivers to simply run right off the end of the road, onto the ramp and into the lagoon, and this happened more often than the City of Cocoa Beach wants to admit.
