About


Introduction:

Meeting House Pond is located up a complex of bays and side waters that eventually lead into the Atlantic Ocean at Chatham Harbor at the south end of Cape Cod. From Chatham Harbor, Meeting House Pond is an eight-mile journey up Chatham Harbor, Pleasant Bay and Little Pleasant Bay. Depths are in the five to seven-foot-deep range for most of the journey, but only those drawing four feet or less (and on a rising tide) should attempt the passage all the way north to Meeting House Pond. Once you have arrived, there are a couple of mooring fields and a fairly well equipped marina at the head of the pond.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 13248.

From Chatham Harbor, you will follow the series of unmarked channels through Pleasant Bay and Little Pleasant Bay. Picking up at Allen Point north of Chatham Harbor, head northwest between Strong Island and Nickersons Neck to reach Pleasant Bay. Once you have crossed Pleasant Bay, you must pass through The Narrows, which is a channel that leads between Sipson Island and the mainland. Follow the nun buoys carefully here and also keep an eye on the depth sounder as you feel your way through.

Proceeding north, hug the shore slightly as you leave the last red and green nun buoys behind. Now into Little Pleasant Bay, follow the series of red and green nun buoys north past Namequoit Point, past Old Field Point, and then north up The River. This is where a shoal draft will come in handy, as low tide depths can shoal to three-foot depths here. Proceed north to Frostfish Cove, and then past Lucy Point into Meetinghouse Pond.
