Description: 

The Chatham Fish Pier, at the corner of Shore Road and Barcliff Avenue on Aunt Lydia's Cove, is a true working pier where the local professional fishermen bring in their catch. Visitors can catch the sights, sounds and scents of the action from a prominent observation deck. The members of the fishing fleet make their run each suitable day to the fishing grounds from 3 to 100 miles off Chatham. Their catch consists of haddock, cod, flounder, lobster, pollock, dogfish and halibut. The one-day fresh fish is placed in ice and transported in refrigerated trucks to the New York, Boston, New Bedford and local markets, reaching there less than 24 hours from the time it is taken from the ocean. The boats start returning to the pier shortly after noon, depending upon the tide.

Seals are also frequently visible from the Fish Pier observation deck, especially when there are boats unloading.

The Pier is also a port for Coast Guard rescue boats, one of the three local commercial seal watch operations, as well for forays to Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge and sport fishing departures. The Cape Cod Commercial Hook Fisherman's Association provides guides at the Fish Pier to educate visitors about Chatham's strong maritime history and long fishing heritage while also focusing on environmental issues and scientific fisheries management.

Please observe local traffic and parking regulations while at the Fish Pier. Parking in upper lot for visitors, lower lot by permit only.
