There's not a whole lot that you can't find for the average tourist on MacMillan Wharf. It's a great place to go and make your plans for the day. That's where you catch whale watches, see artist in action, look for sharks, go the the pirate museum or take a boat ride. It's a great spot and it's the best... More

A 5 minute stroll turns into a 20 minute attraction. Fishing boats, cruise boats, ferries from Boston and beautiful scenery provide unexpected entertainment and relaxation!

Nice pier with little shops and tours. It was cool to talk to the fisherman late at night. Check out a whale watching tour, well worth it.

There are a few shops and cute photo ops toward the enterance. And plenty of well labeled signs if you're there for a whale watching cruise. But, it's fun to just wander for a bit!

We took a long walk all the way out. There are a lot of big fishing boats and whale watching boats to see all along the wharf.

Come the weekend, there are all kinds of shops and activities going on at the wharf, the high speed ferry is there and the commercial fishing boats are going in and out. Nice to browse around the little shops of handcrafted items. Take a whale watch, fishing trip, visit the Center for Coastal Studies and learn more about the disentanglement... More

This gem might be considered as a link to the past, as well as an active fishing pier, but is best known for whale watches and museums. It is also the main parking lot if you are visiting the village.

Away from the bustle of Commercial Street, this a fun walk past artist's booths and ship berths. Here's also where you board whale watching ships and boat rentals. Worth a few minutes to listen to the waves gently lap the pier. Great views of the harbor.

During the summer all the boats, including the two 90 minute ferries from Boston, live here. It has visitor benches, sea gulls, cormorants, and is next to Lopes Square which has some of the best eating and shopping places in Provincetown.
