At the height of summer, the harbor remains relatively uncrowded, offering plenty of room for boats of all sizes, even mega-yachts[...]The harbor’s deep water and protected anchorages lend themselves to a relaxing stop and worry-free overnights aboard your vessel. When the fleet of lobstermen returns home each day, you’ll likely find them willing to sell you our signature crustaceans straight off the dock!
