Directions By Sea

  • Plymouth Harbor is 5.5 nm from Duxbury Harbor, 20.6 nm from the eastern entrance of the Cape Cod Canal, and about 28 nm from Provincetown.

  • From anywhere on Cape Cod Bay or Massachusetts Bay, use Plymouth Light Flashing (3) 30s 102ft 14M HORN as your waypoint. Then pick up the buoys and stay north of Browns Bank towards Duxbury Pier (Bug) Light Flashing(2) R 5s 35ft 6M HORN.

  • The channel into Plymouth Harbor is well marked, but be aware that the current reaches close to 1.5 knots at peak ebb. Do not venture too close to Plymouth Beach and give the white/orange day mark near the tip of Plymouth Beach a wide berth as it is marking a submerged jetty. Follow the channel to the breakwater.

  • Mean tidal range is 9.2 feet. Use tide tables for Boston. High tide at Gurnet Point is 4 minutes later; low tide is 9 minutes later.¬†Please use current NOAA charts.
