On second thought, It could have been a small animal. In the cape cod canal there are many small furry animals (no clue their name) that eat leftover bait and cleaned fish.

Interesting stuff, can't imagine there are any otters there and I've never heard of them here but could totally see a raccoon having a den way up in those rocks where it holes up during the day and only comes out to scavenge among the rocks for shellfish at night.

 

Imagine any raccoon hiding spots would flood during a king tide so a little skeptical on there being a full time nest but I think it's feasible they come in at night and if caught out on the peninsula when people start walking it for exercise at sunrise could have decided to just hole up until night.

 

That or a tiny shark was very bold squeezing itself among the rocks.

I'd never heard of Sea Otters on US east coast, so I went checking, and could find no  range map indicating that there ever has been. 
What I did find was Sea Mink - Marine Mink which (past tense - extinct about 1890-1920) lived in New England

OK, this tripped some dormant cortical synapses.  There are weasels that live around docks, riprap, jettys.  I've seen them running around and squealing at one of my waterside watering holes.
