Pamet River

The Pamet River is Truro's entrance to Cape Cod Bay. It's named for the Payomet Indians, and is primarily salt marsh. The river flows west nearly all the way across Cape Cod from its eastern beaches, and empties into Cape Cod Bay.

Boat launching facilities are available at Pamet Harbor on Depot Road. The harbor is currently navigable for 2 to 3 hours before and after high tide. There is a nominal charge for ramp use.

“We saw the sunset in the Bay, -- for standing on that narrow Cape was, as I have said, like being on the deck of a vessel... this sight drove everything else quite out of our heads... the shining torch of the sun fell into the ocean.”
Henry David Thoreau
