Habitats & Wildlife
From Hen Cove Landing, you can explore a variety of waterways in the upper portion of Buzzards Bay. If you’re on a kayak, paddle around Hen Cove’s protected shores past the beach to the nearby Sand Spit. Bring a fishing rod, and try casting a line from your kayak in search of small fish.
Hen Cove opens into Red Brook Harbor, which is well known as a boater’s paradise. Boaters can anchor near Bassetts Island to spend an afternoon playing on the water. For a day of striper fishing, head out past the island to the open waters of Buzzards Bay or Cape Cod Canal.
