We enjoyed a sunny afternoon watching all the interesting boats go by. Excellent views of the lighthouse, Chappaquiddick and the harbor from the elevated deck.

There is an observation deck so you can sit up on top and see boats come in and out. The ferry runs back and forth continuously and takes about 2 minutes to cross the channel to Chappy. Parking is near by.

From the wharf you can enjoy a view of Chappaquiddick across the water, the Chappy Ferry going back and forth, and so much more. A great place to visit and spend some time enjoying the views.

Edgartown Memorial Wharf offers some good views of Nantucket Sound and the surrounding area. Good view of the lighthouse from a distance, moored boats and the Edgartown coastline.

The harbor views are breathtaking. The raised deck offers sweeping views of the harbor with the moored boats and sailboats. You can watch returning fishing sloops that are unloading their daily catch.
