Sunset Live Cam

 

Best of NewburyportSM Experts

    To And From Plum Island

    One mile from the Merrimack River Coast Guard Station, our Sunset Live Cam allows you the perfect view of the Newburyport sky over the Marsh.

    In partnership with Bob Lobster Restaurant, the Sunset Live Cam is positioned to overlook the Atlantic Ocean just before it empties in the Merrimack River.

    You’ll enjoy stellar Newburyport waterfront sunsets and sunrises, as well as a cool views of all the Newburyport boating traffic, including our early morning fishermen casting for a fresh catch, and our kayakers paddling their way to and from Plum Island Beach.

    Now that you have seen our Sunset Live Cam views, make sure to treat yourself to live view from a Bob Lobster picnic table while you enjoy Greater Newburyport’s best fresh local seafood.
