Boat Ramp Parking
Boat Ramp Parking Passes:
Please note that if you have a current New Smyrna Beach annual parking permit for your vehicle as a resident of Volusia County, you do not need a separate boat ramp permit to park at one of the three City boat ramps. You may not leave your trailer parked without the vehicle.

8. You do not have a parking permit until you are notified via e-mail that it has been activated, which may take up to five business days.
9. If you do not apply online, boat ramp parking permit applications and the required documentation can be hand-delivered to:

Please note that hand-delivered permit applications may take up to five (5) business days to process.
