You can drive out on the warf, just to look at the boats, ships, cruises, get info on whale watches, fishing, sailing, etc. Parking is in the middle of the warf. Artistic views for photography.

This was a fun, light stroll with my family along the pier to get a taste of Provincetown. Colorful scenery and great people watching, lots of photo opportunities and delicious things to eat!

There are a handful of little shops where you can observe artists at work. We watched one artist creating a dulcimer, another making whimsical wood burning creations, and also a sign maker/wood carer. Really fun to talk to the artists and have an opportunity to buy directly from them. Lots of whale watching tours depart from this location and this... More

MacMillian Wharf is a combination of artists, whale watching boats, sailing boats, nearby restaurants, and if you look hard, you can take photos of the commercial fishing fleet, and fresh fish being unloaded from the fleet. It's a great place to stroll after a good meal in P-Town, and you might even see a giant bluefin tuna being loaded onto... More

This is the main entry point for the ferries to arrive and leave from. It's been nicely built up in the past few years to serve ferry passengers, and is much more sturdy than it was. There's great photo ops for shutterbugs along the wharf.

We ended up parking at the Pilgrim Monument (flat rate of $12 for the DAY - includes a ticket to go up into the Monument) and walking down to the Wharf. Parking closer was impossible. Food - There are several restaurants/vendors close to... More

I walked the pier at 5:30 AM. It was a perfect time to take pictures. There are commercial fishing boats and a ferry that will take you to Boston.
