Hadley's is a deep water anchorage off of Woods Hole. It is very protected, and also on the fair side of the tides that rush through the Woods Hole passage. This makes it a great spot to wait out the tides or as a stopover. The harbor is ringed with islands, Bull, Uncatena, Naushon. All are owned by the Forbes family, who have kept the area pristine and beautiful. There is an island to walk on, and a never ending parade of boats, people and dogs coming through the anchorage.
