    As far as I know Chatham is not pwc user friendly especially in that area. As far as I know Monomoy Island area is part of the national seashore where pwc's are not allowed. Your best bet is Barnstable aka Hyannis, Centerville, Cotuit, Osterville, Barnstable Harbor or Yarmouth and Dennis.

    While we're talking about the Cape. Are PWC allowed in the Cape Cod Canal?

    I'll accept what is posted. But, let me say, you don't want to be in there anyway.

    The problem is that the currents in the canal are pretty wicked. Combined with the entire canal being a no wake zone, and you got a lot of no fun on a pwc....

    In fact, I would think it's quite dangerous IMHO. As many pwc's are pretty tippy at no wake speed, and the currents are strong enough to toss you off. With no chance of catching up to your pwc to re-board....

    Thanks

    Dave, looks like my wife wants to maybe squeeze in one more day at the beach possibly this week end. Was hoping the cape but going to abort that based on feedback, two night minimum on hotels, traffic etc.. so wondering if there a #1 top choice, best pick, must ride place you would recomend with a beach? Must have a beach so wife can have some fun as well? Hoping no more then an hr from Hopkinton Ma if possible...

    I didn't know it was a no wake zone (I must have missed that). I went through there on my boat two years ago. The water was great so we flew through at WOT for awhile. It will do about 65 MPH in good water. I could tell that we were running faster with the current on the way out but had to do some work against the current on the return trip.
