Rye Boat Ramp is one of the better equipped ramps on the Mornington Peninsula, designed to keep traffic flowing even in the busiest of times. Cars are required to approach the boat ramp from the west and exit from the east, with bays provided to prevent holdups whilst prepping your boat for either the water, or the drive home. Conveniently, there is also a Jetty, so after parking the car you can remain dry and quickly board your vessel ready for a day out on the water. Having said all that, during peak times, even with the three ramps provided, it still gets busy and the old saying “the early bird catches the worm” is definitely true for those who are wanting to prevent waiting in queues.
From the water Rye Boat Ramp accesses Port Phillip Bay via a clearly marked channel surrounded on either side by large sand banks. At low tide this channel does become narrower and it can make it difficult for larger vessels to manoeuvre around the many other jet skis and boats, who are also all trying to access this boat ramp – although the depth in the centre on the channel is ample.
Unfortunately, like many of the boat ramps on the Mornington Peninsula, fees do apply.
