Comments: 5AM-10PM. This ramp located at the confluence of Sisters Creek and the St. Johns River is a well utilized ramp for offshore and inshore boaters. Since the construction of the new Sisters Creek Marina/Kingfish site, some of the crowds have been reduced by boaters using the alternate site. However, this ramp is always at capacity on weekends and some weekdays during the summer. Overall, the ramp is in excellent condition and well regarded by boaters.

Mayport boat ramp is used almost exclusively by boaters heading offshore and to the Mayport jetties for fishing. It is the largest ramp in Duval County and can handle the largest trailerable boats. Some shoaling has been reported just off the base of the ramp, however this is only a problem for the largest boats at very low tides. Recent improvements have alleviated many of the problems of overcrowding, although parking is still tight on busy weekends. Swift currents make loading and unloading boats challenging during extreme conditions. The sometimes difficult water conditions and crowds may intimidate less experienced boaters who may use Intracoastal
