Other depth info: Despite that they may claim you need not worry about when low tide is (they are casual about lots of other things as well, including boat maintenance), don't wait until low tide to return the sailboats they charter. At low tide, the water is 2 feet deep with pockets up to 3 feet deep. It's mostly a muddy bottom you can stand on until you get to the ramp where it becomes rocky. The draft of their 4 sailboats are about 2 feet (empty), returning a chartered boat at low tide involves getting out and pulling the boat 500 meters to shore.

Reviews for Desolate Charter Service
Extremely Poor Charter Service, 2007-02-13
Captain: , Huntington, NY (2310)

This place, basically a converted rock, is a local charter service. The boats are in extremely poor condition. I chartered a 23 foot sailboat that had numerous problems, but since you essentially wade out 30 feet to the sailboat after you have paid, you cannot see from the shore that the blocks are frozen and lines are frayed.
