St. Augustine Lighthouse Park Boat Ramp
442 Ocean Vista Avenue,
St Augustine Fl. 32080
This is an easy access point for the Salt Run. (Inlet) You can launch either off the dock, the beach or right off the boat ramp.
Watch out for boat traffic and be aware of oyster shells around the edges of the shoreline. You won’t even see them at high tide but they are there. Grab some water shoes to protect your feet. For beginners, it is best to head south into the inlet as going north will lead you out to more open waters where wind and tides will challenge any paddler.
Anastasia State Park
300 Anastasia Park Road,
St. Augustine, FL 32080
Anastasia State Park is a beautiful place for flat-water paddling. It will cost you a few dollars to get in but you can launch off a sandy beach area where there are picnic tables. Dolphins and Manatees are very common sights in the Salt Run.
