Go mid-morning and watch the fishing boats come in and the seals are everywhere. It's complete entertainment watching them, and watching the fishermen feed them. Great free entertainment.

We stopped at the pier at around 3.30 pm, which turned out to be a great time to see lots of seals and sea birds as they surrounded the fishing boats, which came in to unload their fresh catch. Even though I’m from Cape Ann, I have not previously gotten such an up-close look of some of the fishermen’s chores. From the pier above, which was not crowded, people can watch how fish are unloaded, placed on scales, send down a metal ramp into huge boxes and covered with ice. The seals and seagulls put on a show begging for fish. It was such a fun experience!

Great place to watch the boars come in and unload. Watch the seals all waiting for the fisherman to toss them scraps. The take out at the fish market is fantastic and great value. Busy ace so parking can be an issue but worth a visit.

They Offer two lobster rolls. Cold with mayo, and still on a toasted bun. Hot with butter,also on a toasted bun, with a little lettuce. Very generous lobster portion for the price. Blackened swordfish with guacamole and sweet onion is also terrific. Fish and chips is excellent. Clam chowda is basic and only a slightly above average. Very casual sitting area with picnic tables in the parking lot. The observation deck where you can see genuine Chatham fisherman load in the days catch is also there. A real gem.

When our seal watching boat tour was cancelled due to inclement weather, we drove to the pier to try to see the seals. We saw much more. The fisherman were bringing in their daily catches of dogfish, rays and tuna. It was cool to watch the seals wait by their boats for scraps. There were tons of seals. There was a food market with lines down the lot that we didn’t want to wait on. There’s a small beach to walk and see more seals sunning on the sandbars. Worth the trip. The parking lot was full but there are spots on the street across the road.
