I love the feeling of this wharf. The views of P'town, boats, the harbor, and the four wives of Portuguese fisherman are very cool. The whale watching boats leave from here as well. It's just a beautiful place to view from the shore, or to be out on the wharf viewing historic P'town. It's hard to find a place with... More

This very scenic wharf lies central to Commercial Street. Many boating, fishing , whale watching, and kayaking excursions can be had there, but there are also artistic vendors along one area. One may drive along this pier, bike or walk as well. It's also a great vantage point to look back at a very picturesque town! Don't miss the food... More

On a sunny day this is a nice stroll and gets you away from the Commercial Street crowds. There is a little shopping but mostly local and commercial boats to see.

Took a nice walk out and saw all the boats. Nice view of the bay. You need to walk out to get the full vibe of Provincetown.

From commercial fishing vessels to party boats, the MacMillan Wharf continues the tradition of the connection between people and the sea. Named for the local resident and Arctic explorer, Donald B. MacMillan, the wharf now welcomes both local fishermen and visiting yachtsmen as well as day-trippers.
