With the ease of convenient boating access to both Nantucket Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, Outermost Harbor in Chatham remains one of the prime locations for real estate and recreation along Cape Cod. This enviable location is right at the elbow of Cape Cod, and has grown considerably over the past half century or so, from it’s origins as a locally known location for fishing and beach-going that was once called Horne’s Marina, to the site of a full service marina today, including recreational boat service and sales.
The Outermost Harbor Marine offers full service to boaters, including moorings and dry racks, boat slips, recreational boat sales and charters. The marina also offers a store with snacks and ice for those getting ready to hit the open water, as well as a fuel dock that’s open to the public. In addition, you will find valet rack service, restrooms and more, all located at the site of the marina.
Outermost Harbor Marine is open every day of the week and holds the distinction of being named “Best Marina in Chatham” for both 2014 and 2015. The marina also serves as the location for the weigh-in station of the OHM Fishing Tournament, running from June through September in Outermost Harbor. Marketed as a friendly competition among marina customers, prizes are awarded for winners of the tournament.
In addition, for those seeking a little adventure, the Outermost Adventures Water Taxi is a great way to see the sites of the region. The water taxi transports visitors to places you can only reach by water, like North Monomoy Wildlife Refuge and South Beach. The Wildlife Refuge is a prime location for migratory birds, giving a front row seat to those interested in viewing nesting and feeding habitats.
South Beach, meanwhile, offers the luxury of an unspoiled stretch of sand, with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Visitors are welcome to bring along fishing poles, beach chairs and coolers. The taxis run every day during the summer months, weather contingent, and you don’t even have to make a reservation.
For those in search of a summer home or year-round home, Outermost Harbor provides a range of single-family homes and condominiums. With sweeping views of the water, the homes and condo units are just steps away from the beach, with nearby boat slips to provide easy access to the rest of the Cape Cod area.
