Great little free excursion for the kids. Stand on the top deck and watch the seals swim and play up close. As the boats come in with the fish, they put on quite a show!

Please reference the Chatham Pier Fish Market reviews. They are one and the same. The fishing pier and the fish market are adjacent properties.

Quick in and out, as long as you know what you are purchasing. We have had the lobster roll in the past, which was phenomenal, but this time turned our attention to crab cakes and jumbo shrimp. They have plenty of fresh fish that is...More

While visiting Chatham we stopped here to see the seals. We were not disappointed. We were able to watch and photograph about 6 different seals swimming around the pier.

We enjoyed the food and watching seals by the piers. It's a good place to bring kids for a quick look at seals. Unfortunately the parking can be horrible and there are only a few picnic tables outside for which to sit and eat.

Captain Mike on the Magic. Visit his website. Abdow Magic I believe. Or Abdow fishing. He leaves from the Chatham fish pier. Good sized boat. We used him for a striper charter and it was great.

There are some seals around when there are fishing boats at the docks. Otherwise you can see seals hauled out at low tide opposite the Chatham Bars Inn.
