Sesuit Harbor is located on the north shore of Cape Cod about seven miles east of Barnstable Harbor in the town of East Denis. The harbor is very easy to enter, and the channel to the protected harbor is relatively short. Expect six-foot depths all the way to the end of the harbor.
East Dennis is located in Barnstable County, which consists of the 15 coastal towns located on the peninsula known as Cape Cod. Bordered on the north by Cape Cod Bay, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean and to the south by Nantucket Sound, it is the easternmost point of land in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. With over 550 miles of shoreline and more than 360 lakes and ponds, the maritime heritage of the region is deeply rooted. Approximately 396 square miles of land are home to over 205,000 year round residents, swelling to more than three times that number during the peak summer months.
Sesuit Harbor has excellent facilities (marinas and a yacht club), so this is an excellent point to base your exploration of the surrounding Cape Cod area out of. If you need repairs, there is a full-service repair yard with a lift in the harbor. There are unfortunately no moorings or anchoring in the harbor.

From Cape Cod Bay, pick up flashing green buoy "1S," about one mile north of the harbor. From here, set a course for flashing red "2" at the west breakwater of the harbor (green daybeacon "3" marks the east breakwater), and then head in to the harbor, keeping an eye our for small moored boats at the first turn. The marinas are located at the head of the harbor to the west (visible in image above). Anchoring and morring are only allowed at the very head of the harbor beyond the marinas.
In the image above you can see the three large marinas in town with the residential areas to the west. The large breakwaters are visible in the foreground, as is the channel leading to Cape Cod Bay.
