A Lobster boat travels through the Cape Cod Canal in Massachusetts while a lobsterman attends to his work.
The Cape Cod Canal, at 17.5 miles (28 km) in length, is an artificial waterway that joins the Cape Cod Bay to the north with Buzzard's Bay, located to the south, crossing through the narrow isthmus of Cape Cod. With a minimum depth of 30 feet (9m) it has dredged approaches and a width of 500 feet (152m). The Cape Cod Canal does not use locks. Boaters through the canal should be forwarned that there are considerable tidal movements.
