A fun and interesting afternoon

Spent the afternoon watching the commercial fishermen bring in their catch. So interesting to see. Had fresh fish and chips from the market - absolutely delicious.

Bes tto get here when the fishing boats are returning to shore....early afternoon. See the catches being brought in, and then sea the seals eating any "throw-overs".

We found the Chatham Pier Fish Market riding the Cape Cod bike trail and running into a group of ladies who told us to follow them to a place we can grab lunch at. At a 15 mile ride in the hot July sun we were all in. Fried seafood at the foot of an very active working harbor. You... More

This is a wonderful way to spend an hour or so for FREE! There is a parking lot with limited parking but be patient, lots of people coming and going. Public bathrooms, lobster rolls, clam chowder...but the best part is going up on the deck and watching the fishing boats come in and load their fish into the ice bins.... More

Excellent fresh seafood at this little take away place on the pier in Chatham. Within walking distance of the Chatham Bars Inn. Our first meal was fish and chips. The fish was fresh with a perfect batter and came with crispy fries. Each serving was large and came with at least two large pieces of fish. We enjoyed it so... More

Watch the ships come in and unload their catch of the day. See the seals swim around hoping to catch a drop fish. Great photo op for the kids. Nice educational moment to show kids where those things on their plate really come from and the hard working folks who make it happen.

Great short stop to see the fish come in - a great idea to make an everyday task in to a tourist attraction means you can see the boats pull up and off load their days earnings while the seals swim close by hoping for one to be thrown over board. Visitors watch from an elevated floor which means we... More

It was so much fun watching the fishing boats unload their catch of the day and the seals swimming around the boats for fallen fish, then going into the market to choose fresh fish for dinner. The blueberry pie was the icing on the cake! Everything was delicious!
