Boating in the Cape and Islands Area




The waters of the Cape and Islands are legendary for their beauty and variety. Our location is home to picture-perfect harbors, miles of unspoiled shoreline and spectacular islands. 

Whether your time on the water is a leisurely sail, a fishing trip or a pleasure cruise, the Auxiliary and the Coast Guard are your partners in boating safety. Safe boating starts well before your vessel is underway. By following good boating practices, you greatly increase the safety of those onboard.

Please use the links on this page to make your boating experience enjoyable…and safe!
