I was going to Provincetown for an overnight but really didn't want to drive in (the traffic can be horrendous in the summer). I looked at ferries in/out of Boston, but they were almost twice as much, & the parking costs are high. Now, this ferry service doesn't seem to be set up for overnight stays in P-town, it took...

The Ferry from Plymouth to P-Town is a nice boat ride. Interns from a wildlife org give info about the barrier islands outside the harbor. Plus, explain about the different whales you might see on the trip over (though doubtful they come close). However, on the trip I was on, we were lucky to see a deer paddling beside our... More

We really enjoyed our express trip via the ferry. In no way did we want to drive to P-Town from just off-Cape, so this was a great option. We scoped the parking availability and decided to use the Town Pier lot since it was only $1/hr. for parking or $10 for the day. The boarding process was easy since we... More

Easy on, easy off in both directions. MUCH better parking rules and regs. In Plymouth vs. PTown. A bit uncomfortable if the weather is nasty, but an easy way to spend a day (or several days) in PTown, which is a really great walking/bicycling community......bikes welcome on the ferry, too.

Relaxing trip from Plymouth to Provincetown and I didn't have to drive. Mon. Wed. and Fri. offer $25 round trip ticket per person. Reservations must be made but ticketing, boarding and disembarking are smooth. Nice ride especially if weather's nice, which it was when we went. Definitely recommended if you need to get to Provincetown from Plymouth. The only thing... More

My 21 year old son and I booked a reservation on the ferry. While doing that I asked of there was a discount ticket on groupon that I could obtain. The very nice girl said that there was one on their website and that if I could print it and bring it the day I booked (Monday) I could ride... More

Got a good deal on Groupon for the boat ride. The ride to Provincetown was nice alot quicker than driving. We had about 4 hours in town enough time to walk around and get a bite to eat. The ride back to Plymouth was a little choppy but fun. Will do it again next year.

Delightful crew and trip! ALl were terrific. The Naturalist and intern, Krill, we're so sweet and we saw a fin whale up close. The educational talk was an added highlight. Fun folks, more so on way back as many imbibed in Provincetown! I brought on my bike and the trail to Race Point is a must do. Gale Force bike... More

We took this ferry on a beautiful summer day - great scenery and a nice ride. Given that we had 4 young kids in tow, however, I felt quite annoyed with the grossly understated timing advertisements. Everything specifically states that this is a 1.5 hour drive. Leave at 10 and arrive at 11:30 - return at 4:30 and return at... More

I bought tickets for our family on Groupon. There was parking nearby – but unfortunately no bathrooms (the visitor center’s were out of order). The boat was clean, there was plenty of seating (first come, first sit) and bikes were free. The ride was very smooth and we even saw a whale on the way over. The ferry is not... More
