Chatham is a Boater’s Dream

Boating is an important part of a Cape Cod lifestyle, and Chatham is, quite simply, a boater’s dream. This charming town sits on the elbow of Cape Cod with miles of white sand beaches to explore and two distinct harbors.

An extremely popular summer destination, Chatham opens to both Nantucket Sound and the Atlantic. This longstanding trading, fishing and whaling port has transformed itself over the years into a charming Cape Cod town.

Chatham Harbor sits to the east, providing access to the Atlantic and Pleasant Bay. That’s where you’ll find the majority of the area’s fishing fleet. It’s a bit trickier, though, for small boats. Boaters sometimes head to the Harwich side of Pleasant Bay to tie up for dinner and drinks at Wequassett Resort.

Stage Harbor, in comparison, offers a safer point of entry for visiting boaters. It’s close to Monomoy Island, which helps protect boaters from the open Atlantic. It means traveling around Monomoy to reach the Atlantic side of the Cape, although smaller boats can sometimes use an unmarked shortcut.

For a true taste of a boating lifestyle, one great neighborhood to check out in Chatham is Oyster River Hills. The neighborhood offers up deeded slips on the Oyster River and a private, deep-water dock.

It’s possible from here to head out for some kayaking on Oyster Pond or to make it to Nantucket Sound. Not far away is Harding Beach, which offers up room for launching a sailboat or kayak. You’ll also find some boat parking at the beach, and it’s simply a short boat ride away from Monomoy Island.

The nearby Oyster River Boatyard provides boat slips, boat storage, service and repairs. This full-service marina also allows for direct access to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. The marine store is open up for business daily during the season.
