Located in Harwich Port about eight miles west of the eastern tip of Cape Cod, Doanes Creek leads in to Allen Harbor, which has three excellent marinas and a small anchorage for visiting boats. Harwich Port is east of both West Dennis and Dennis Port and is a convenient stop point for boaters traveling Nantucket Sound and the islands.

The image above is a view from the south looking north over Allen Harbor. Off to the right (east) is the town of Harwich Port. Two marinas can be seen at the head of Allen Harbor. The marina on the left side of the harbor is Town Landing Allen Harbor, which does not accept transient guests (or only has a limited number of slips for visitors; call ahead), but does pump gas and diesel fuel. To the right is the Allen Harbor Yacht Club where reciprocal privileges may be available for yacht club members of other organizations. If you cannot find a slip at the local marina, there is limited anchorage just inside the entrance that is extremely well protected.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 13229.

The beginning of the entrance channel into Allen Harbor is located at an approximate waypoint of N41 39.307 W70. Here you will find green can buoy “1” and red nun buoy “2.” Once you have safely picked up the entrance marks, proceed north to intercept green can buoy “3,” red nun buoy “4,” green can buoy “5,” red nun buoy “6” (visible in the image above), and then a quick flashing green light on the west inlet jetty. Depths in the approach are around five to seven feet, with seven-foot depths inside the harbor.

Once inside Allen Harbor, you will find three marinas, but as of this writing none of them accept transient guests. There is, however, a fuel dock here that sells both gas and diesel fuels. Moorings are administered by the yacht club.
