The Authentic Cape Cod ExperienceShare
Be truly transported as you awake to a view of our local fishing fleet heading out for their daily catch. The genuine character of Chatham has survived the test of time and you can experience this remarkable locale firsthand here at Chatham Bars Inn.
Morning Harbor / Seal Cruise
Hop aboard the “Bar Tender”, our custom designed, 18-person capacity beach launch and watch our native harbor seals bask in the surf. For reservations, contact our concierge at 1-800-527-4884.
Fishing The Cape
We are fortunate that some of the finest fishing grounds are located just a short boat ride away. Hop aboard “Star Struck”, our 34 foot Regulator and we will get you there in a hurry. Whether it’s light tackle, targeting Striped Bass, Bluefish and Black Sea Bass, or a full day offshore in search of Bluefin Tuna and Sharks, we have state of the art gear and knowledgeable captains to put you on the fish. Should you reel in a “keeper” (or “keepah” as the locals say), we will have our chefs prepare it for dinner.
Cape Cod National Seashore Tour
Departing from our pier every 30 minutes, the “Bar Tender”, our locally crafted beach launch, provides complimentary shuttle service to and from the outer beach, a section of Cape Cod National Seashore, one of the most beautiful barrier beaches in the world.
