A ferry runs from New Bedford, but most
visitors arrive by pleasure boat.

Cuttyhunk Church Windvane
There is a single church in town, used for a variety of purposes. Cuttyhunk is a dry island, although stories abound of deliveries by the ferry Alert of grocery bags from the mainland, liquor packed below the groceries.

Entrance to the harbor
Years ago Norman Gingrass flew his seaplane in and out of Cuttyhunk. He was an incredibly skilled pilot, and would use the harbor entrance as his runway. Many a novice to Norman's antics would stare in horror as he bore down the channel, just clearing an approaching yacht's mast.
The New Cuttyhunk Ferry
This is an image from the 70's. The bouy is no longer there, nor is the windmill on the hill.
