Boating is often considered an expensive past time. Some would argue that time spent with family and friends enjoying the gulf coast’s emerald waters is priceless. Up close encounters with dolphins and other wildlife or having the experience of eating a fresh fish caught with your own hands are experiences that are hard to put a price tag on. That said, boating does come with certain expenses, however, not all are exorbitant. The daily launch fee at the public boat ramp located at Pensacola Shipyard is a low $5. For the price of a cup of coffee, you feel the salt air rushing through your hair and sea spray splashing your face.
