This pier is where we departed on our Dolphin Whale watching tour. There are many yachts to ogle and I was able to watch the unloading of fresh catches from working commercial fishing boats.

This was my first visit to Cape Cod and Provincetown and the wharf embodied all I thought Cape Cod to be. Loved the "They Also Faced the Sea" building. Had great fun doing the whale-watching tour with Dolphin Fleet.

OK for debarking and embarking the fast ferry to Boston. Also the place to get tickets for sailing, fishing, dolphin watching. Other than that, not really an attraction.

The heart of Provincetown! Named after one of the more famous MacMillans! (Of which there are many) Great food, beverages and sites within easy walking distance from the wharf.

The Macmillan Wharf is a very nice place to take a walk and enjoy the harbor view. It's the Provincetown chief gateway with the whale watching tours, fisherman and even an express ferry to Beantown...enjoy!

The Dolphin Fleet has 4 boats going many different times so you can always get on a whale watch and The "Bay Lady Schooner" is a beautiful sailboat run by a wonderful family. Just the view alone is worth a walk to this wharf and also they have artisans with their hand painted crafts.

This is where you catch the Dolphin Fleet of whale watch boats, from which you can see some of the amazing humpback whale actions they take you to off of Stellwagon Bank

MacMillian Wharf is always a must. We walk the wharf just about everyday. Even though nothing really changes, it always a pleasant walk. Returning to town, the view of the harbor is spectacular.
