Parking is limited, but you get a great view of the harbour and the fishing boats coming and going. Unfortunately the seals did not put in an appearance for us. The sculpture at the top of the steps called " Providers " says it all.

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.
