Unless you just love to drive, this is the best way to go to Provincetown. The trip is usually quite pleasant, the boat is large enough to deal nicely with normal swells. You get to Provincetown much faster than driving, the trip is fun, and you can spend 4 or 5 hours enjoying the sights of provincetown. You can bring... More

We bought a Travel Zoo voucher that advertised the trip as the trip to P-Town at 10 and the return to Plymouth at 6. They did not make clear that the return time is when the boat ARRIVES. Get ready to spend a lot of money for only 5 hours at your destination.

If you have all day, and want to see Provincetown this is a great way to enjoy the sea and arrive in time for lunch, shopping and then a boat ride back to Plymouth. I went mid-week without a reservation, although they are recommended. I found the best day I could and off I went. Very enjoyable trip.

If you like seafaring life, take this small ferry and enjoy the salt water air and gorgeous scenery as you sail through Plymouth Harbor and out to sea. A wonderful trip, but not if you get seasick.

We try to go to P-town at least once during the summer season and there's no better way to do it than taking the Plymouth-Provincetown Ferry! You board the ferry at Plymouth pier located next to the Mayflower II in the AM and it drops you at the Provincetown pier which is located right in the middle of all the... More

We stayed in Plymouth and used the ferry to make a trip to Provincetown. The boat was great and saved us a long tiresome drive!! Instead, we got to Provincetown refreshed and ready to climb the tower and explore the main street! We took the return ferry and were even MORE glad not to be driving! Be sure to bring... More

This is a pleasant and easy way to visit PTown. The only issue is that if they don't have enough passengers they cancel! In the summer it's packed so reservations are a must. The ferry is comfortable and has a snack bar with indoor as well as outdoor seating. The ride is fun with all the islands and jetties of... More

Although next time I go I'll drive, this was a great way to see P-Town to get a flavor of the town. The ferry ride itself was as comfortable as can be with those hard seats. The crew was great and we left on time - it did take an hour and half, as advertised. As we pulled into Provincetown... More

This ferry ride is so relaxing, we boarded at 10:00am and docked in P-Town around noon, we had lunch and people watched then back onboard at 4:30pm and into Plymouth by 6:00pm...a great little trip.
