Hi Bob,,, can you tell me more about the chart room in Bourne? I'm in Somerset Ma. and I have been dying to go down to the Cape, use the Bourne ramp and do a little touring with the wife. Can you tell me ,,, does the Chart room have its own dock to use while dining or do you have to use a mooring with launch available? I would like to try out that area maybe this next season. We mostly travel around R.I. towards Bristol and into Warren where there are a couple nice places to eat. We like the Wharf in Warren and right next to that is Blount Seafood which is outside only but the food is great. Both of these have their own docking with no fees as long as you eat there. Another good food place is in Fall River , called the Gypsy Seagull which is a floating bar and outside dining, mostly take out kind of food , but fun place if you stop there at night. Dock right along side. Gets busy at night and I'm kinda old for night life lol.. I just started boating last year , bought a Grady Overnighter and I'm still learning to use the boat and looking for new places. We have not tried out Newport yet and that's on my list also.
Thanks in advance
Hi Dennis - Thanks for your recommendations. Fall River and Rhode Island are guide a haul from Wareham but if I get adventurous I may give it a try.
For the Chartroom there are slips available at the Kingman Marina, but there can sometimes be a wait for up to an hour so during busy days. The cost is $15 (plus tip for the dock hands) for three hours.
Revive the thread as the Spring is here... I'm very new to salt water boating but here is what I've learned so far.
There are a few places in Onset; Marc Anthony's has some of the best pizza on the Cape, Quahog Republic is decent, both are a short walk from the Town docks. Soprano's on Cuttyhunk is worth the trip. There is also a decent place, surprisingly dressy when we were there, near the marina at the East end of the Canal, Fisherman's View and I hear that the Pilot House across the marina is also decent and casual. Enjoy!
We boat out of Marion...Chartroom is always at the top of our list. I'd also suggest heading down to Woods Hole. You can either go into Eel Pond and get slips/moorings or sometimes get tie up space just before the drawbridge to go into Eel Pond. 3-4 great restaurants there for lunch, etc., Shuckers Raw Bar is our fav. We also like to head down to the end of the Canal and tie up at Sandwich Marina and have lunch at the Pilot House or Fisherman's View. Both are great spots.
