Buzzard’s Bay Safety Tips with TowBoatUS Cape Cod/Plymouth

Ryan Collins

The waters around the Cape Cod Canal and Buzzard's Bay are truly one-of-a-kind. Strong currents, lots of structure, and the general "fishiness" of the area draws boaters from far and wide. 

While most of the time boating in Buzzard's Bay is a leisurely activity, there are certain conditions that create potential hazards on the water. ​The combination of current, wind, and boat traffic can also be a bit intimidating - especially for a "green" boater.

Captain Shawn Brule and his fleet of captains from TowBoatUS Cape Cod/Plymouth regularly provide towing assistance for broken down boaters in the canal and Buzzard's Bay area. 

After performing hundreds of tows in this area, Shawn has learned a thing or two about the nuances and potential hazards in BBAY and inside the canal. Below is a video of Shawn sharing some of his key safety points for boating in Buzzard's Bay.

Before heading out on a trip around the canal or into Buzzard's Bay, consider joining BoatUS as a member - which starts at $159/ year for unlimited saltwater towing. Members of My Fishing Cape Cod can use their BoatUS discount code to receive 10% off.

Buzzard's Bay is a large body of water, and not being a member of TowBoat US could result in an expensive tow back to the dock. I have used TowBoat's services twice now and in total those tows would of cost me $1,700 if I was not a member of BoatUS.
