Situated on the southern shore of Cape Cod, Osterville is one of the most scenic and idyllic harbors in Massachusetts, and is part of the seven-village scheme that makes up Barnstable proper.

Most all of the boating activity in Osterville is centered on the east side of Little Island and in West Bay, where a large anchorage and yachting fleet opens up to the town’s yachting facilities beyond the drawbridge (15-foot closed vertical clearance). Two large yachting facilities dominate the scene and most any marine repair can be done here.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 13229.

Osterville is reached through a narrow 6-foot-deep channel that leads in from Nantucket Sound through West Bay, and then onto North and Cotuit bays beyond the drawbridge (15-foot closed vertical clearance).

The west entrance to Cotuit Bay from Nantucket Sound is only four feet deep and is only recommended for vessels with extreme shoal drafts and dinghy exploration only.
