Old Shore Road Ramp #480

View Larger Map

Located in the village of Cotuit. Resident only parking adjacent to launch area but public free parking available along nearby Putnam Avenue, five minute walk to launch area. Do not park in areas marked no parking as enforcement is vigorous, especially in the summer. Drop off at ramp, park and return. Easy carry, easy launch. This spot gives you access to the huge area of Cotuit Harbor, North Bay and West Bay in Osterville. Well protected from all but the strongest winds, especially close to the shores. Very heavy boat traffic in the summer in all areas. Stripers and bluefish cruise these waters all season and “The Narrows” between Cotuit Bay and North Bay is a well-known location for early season bass. The fishing and paddling potential of this huge area is only limited by your stamina!
