Provincetown Harbor / Long Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Provincetown Harbor can be a lively place at peak paddling season in summer, so I don’t recommend launching from the main piers and parking areas in the center of town. Instead, head for this quieter spot in the lovely West End, just beyond the U.S. Coast Guard station.
At this far end of the harbor, the water at low tide gets pretty thin indeed, so heed your tide chart. To your right is a series of shore-side cottages and private homes, and the Red Inn, which offers some of the finest dining on the Cape with an unparalleled view of the harbor and Long Point. At the farthest end is a dike built to protect a salt marsh farther west and, beyond, Herring Cove Beach."
