Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Fish and Wildlife | News | Date Posted: Monday, October 18, 2021



“DNREC’s Augustine Beach Boat Ramp will be closed temporarily through Oct. 28 for completion of a channel dredging project.”

 

The Augustine Beach Boat Ramp near Port Penn and adjacent intertidal beach located on the south side of the existing rock groin will remain periodically closed through Oct. 28 to complete maintenance dredging of the boat ramp access channel, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control announced today. Weather permitting for completion of the project, the ramp will reopen with full access on Oct. 29.

Until then, the boat ramp will be closed from 8 a.m. each Monday until 5 p.m. each Thursday, reopening from 5 p.m. each Thursday until 8 a.m. each Monday. The Augustine Beach Boat Ramp parking lot will remain open for the duration of the dredging project.

Boaters who regularly use the Augustine Beach Boat Ramp can alternately use the Fort DuPont Boat Ramp, located approximately five miles north in Delaware City.

For more information, please call the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife Fisheries Section at 302-739-9914.
