My thoughts on Broome boat ramps

One thing that surprised me when I last visited Broome was the massive tides and how this drastically changes the boat launching areas.  

What I mean by this is that the ramps are great when the tide is high, though when the tide is heading down or low there is no way to launch your boat unless you drive down onto the beach.

In addition, if you have to launch off the beach the water is quite shallow hence you have to drive a fair distance into the water which isn’t great for your vehicle… perhaps this is the reason why one local told me never to buy a 4WD from Broome!

With the above in mind, please always keep an eye on the tides and perhaps talk to the locals to get an idea of the best approach to launching and retrieving your boat.
