Boat ramp availability

Yes - Wide paved ramp with good depth from mid to high tide. Minimal to unusable at low tide for deeper draft boats.

Boats may be launched at the Town Landing Ramp, located at the end of Town Landing Road. This ramp is intended primarily for the use of non-commercial launching of recreational boats. Boats may not be launched from the public beach.

Non-commercial Boat Launching:
Residents may use the launch free of charge. Non-residents must purchase a launching permit from either the Town Clerk's Office or Town Landing Market. The fee is $10 for a daily permit or $50 for a season permit. Non-residents who have a current mooring in the harbor will receive a permit for one free launch and retrieval.

Commercial Launching:
Commercial launchers must purchase a permit from the Town Clerk's Office or Town Landing Market. The fee is $10 for one launch or $100 for a season permit.

The Harbor Master has the authority to prohibit the use of the public landing ramp if he deems it to be unsafe or likely to cause damage to the ramp.

Reviews for Falmouth Town Landing
Great stop for services, 2015-09-22
Captain: , United States (3192)

We needed to fill our water tank and called ahead to the dockmaster, who welcomed us to stop at the dock and fill up. He said our 52' trawler was the largest boat he's had there and asked us to come in only if the wind was light (it was). They also have a pumpout station which we did not need.

While we filled the tank I walked up the hill to the cute little market, which is well-stocked with the essentials if a bit pricey.

The friendly staff here (of law enforcement professionals) earn this facility high marks from this skipper.

Peaceful and Quiet Mooring Field, 2015-04-22
Captain: , Coconut Grove, FL (20)

My home port for 2 summers so far. Very peaceful place to spend the night. The only busy spot is the parking area at the dock. It is fairly protected that deep into Casco Bay and Clapboard Island blocks much wind and wave action. Free water and sanitary pumpout. Deeper draft boats (4ft +) be careful not to get caught at the inner dock at low tide. Tidal change is about 8ft but it feels like more. Town Landing Market (general store) just up the hill is excellent for groceries, sandwiches, and ice. There are no slips but transient moorings are available. Free dingy use at the dock - just use and quickly return to dock. I highly recommend FTL over any other marina or mooring in the Portland area. Very few lobster traps around to navigate through. Caution on the marine services next door - you will pay through the nose and then some. Approach from the SE just west of Clapboard island is easy going and good depth. Caution to watch your depth and charts approaching from the NE - nasty unmarked shoal between Clapboard and Sturdivant Islands.

We have kept our boat here for years. Friendly place with very limited parking, 2014-07-02

Well kept pier and docks. Floating docks are available for temporary tie up. The Harbormaster Alan and his staff are first class. Parking is an issue. the small lot is for Falmouth residents only and there are only a couple of day spots close by. Other parking is quite a hike up the hill to find a place that its legal to park . Ask the harbormaster for directions. A sandwich beer shop with some limited groceries and excellent fresh lobster rolls is up a steep hill about 1/4 mile. All other stores and eateries require wheels.

Busy Place, 2012-07-30
Captain: , Berwyn (250)

Busy place on weekends. Limted parking and off site parking is a hike up the hill. Nice dock to pick up guests.
