You really haven't experienced Cape Cod until you've at least wandered around Provincetown at the very tip of the Cape. You could drive there but doing so from Plymouth would take you an-hour-and-a-half - with the accelerator pedal pretty well jammed to the floor. Without traffic. But there is always traffic, with the weekends and public holidays seeing the most... More

The only bad thing i have to say about this is that it was late leaving Plymouth, it felt like it took forever to get under way because of the photos they take (at no obligation to purchase) but we still didn't want them taken and was never given a choice as they snap it before you can even say...

Driving to Provincetown is a chore. Driving in Provincetown is a bigger chore. Parking in Provincetown requires either a lucky charm or significant cash, or both. Why not take the ferry? When the ferry isn't delayed, it will get you from Plymouth to P-Town a bit faster than driving. Weather permitting you'll have a great boat ride, and you may... More

Spent a day in Ptown- the ferry was so easy. We even enjoyed the very rough seas back to Plymouth. I suggest you bring a waterproof jacket with a hood just in case and watch for deals on Groupon.

We found a coupon on the computer and decided it was a good way to get to Provincetown. The round trip cost on a Thursday or Friday was $25 if you printed out the coupon, a great value. It took about 90 minutes each way but it was hot and the sea breeze felt wonderful, we didn't see any dolphins... More

Convenient and nice. Light menu on board and clean bathrooms. A little pricey IMO, $121 for 2 adults and 1 kid, but much easier than driving. One ferry per day, 5 hours at PTown.

The Plymouth to Provincetown ferry is a fun way to spend a few hours over in P-town without having to make the drive. The employees were professional and polite. The vessel seemed recently renovated and in pretty good shape. The bar was clean, fully stocked, with prices you’d expect on a boat. Here are some hints to get the most... More

We go two or three times every year and always have a great time! Great ride across the bay with time to have a stroll around P-Town with stops for drinks, shopping and lunch. They have a bar that has snacks, cold drinks and a nicely stocked bar. You will see lots of Bloody Mary's even before the boat leaves... More

A couple of days ago we took the ferry over from Plymouth (Mayflower Pier) to Provincetown for a day trip, my grand children were visiting. It was a delightful sunny day and we enjoyed not having to battle summer traffic across the Sagamore Bridge. Our Captain and Marine Biologist on board spotted some whales and we slowed down and stopped... More
