In this segment of New England Boating, hosts Tom Richardson and Parker Kelley explore Massachusetts’ New Bedford Harbor, learning about the area’s marinas, moorings, launch ramps, and details boaters need to know to visit the harbor.

Along the way, they visit Coast Guard Park, where most transient boaters access downtown New Bedford, check out the harbor’s hurricane barrier — one of the largest on the East Coast — and see the spot where Herman Melville departed on the whale ship Acushnet. Also, Parker Kelley speaks with New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell about how this commercial fishing port has become a great destination for boating and dining.
