Not as much fishing activity as days long gone by, but still a pleasant visit. The charter fishing boats are now mostly replaced with whale watching ships and ferries and the local commercial fleet is almost gone compared to the 60's and 70's. Excellent photo opportunities at every angle and we even saw the annual gay car show at the... More

Definitely the most gorgeous pier I've ever seen. We spent a long time wandering here... watching the yachts and ships, checking out the tiny colorful shops and just enjoying the view. P-town is such a beautiful place to be, the wharf is no different.

The Cape is all about the water that surrounds it! Besides providing nearly all of Provincetown's parking, the Wharf is your gateway to the explore the magnificent waters that make the area so appealing. Little shops dot the pier, as well as, a few restaurants. Kiosks line the middle where you can sign up for whatever water adventure you choose:... More

On a beautiful day, you've got to walk the wharf. Awesome views of the beach, ocean, fishing boats docked along the waterfront, and all of the tours leave from here (whale watch, fishing, ferry, etc.)

Since the fire took the old wharf the new is bigger and beautiful. This is where you can catch the Boston Ferry, a Whale watch boat or the Bay Lady II for your sail. As well as seeing the local fishing vessels. So very scenic.

Don't miss Rilleau leather. Kim is the second generation of leather craftsmen and is not just skilled but a hell of a nice guy.
