Popular Cape Cod Boating Destinations

Managing partner of Laidlaw & Company in New York City, James (Jim or Jimmy) Ahern raises capital for public and private organizations with a concentration in the healthcare sector. When he isn’t busy at Laidlaw, James Ahern is an avid boating enthusiast who enjoys exploring the waters around Cape Cod along the coast of Massachusetts.

One of the most popular of Cape Cod’s attached waterways is Bass River. Boaters can access this large and scenic river from the south-central coast of Cape Cod in order to experience its copious sheltering coves and wealth of wildlife. However, because it attracts so many boaters and fisherman, the Bass River and its resources are now under stress.

Alternative boating destinations in the Cape Cod area include the picturesque working port of Menemsha Harbor, the sandy public beach at Tarpaulin Cove, and the Massachusetts Audubon-managed long barrier island known as Dead Neck. Boaters looking to dock to enjoy shopping and dining on shore should consider the many amenities of Vineyard Haven.
