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.

If you have never been on a whale watch go, if you have go again. We have done 6-8 whale watches over the years are always see something new. PTown has an enormous whale feed ground with in minutes and you always get a great show. Get the tickets on line and get a discount. We recommend the second cruise... More

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.

Park your car in the middle of town. Or just walk out and sit on the benches. Catch the breeze. Watch the boats and seagulls.

We had a great walk on the pier, people watching, and visiting a number of small shops. The height of the afternoon was when a merchant ship from the 1800's came in and we watched it dock. We visited the pirate's museum. It was great family time

A beautiful place to walk around. There are little shacks with artists in them all along the pier. There are boats of every type from whale watching boats to tall ships to yachts. It is very cool to look at. The pier is lined with flags that are whipping in the wind. The place seems very dog friendly. This town... More

Macmillan Wharf is the heart blood of Ptown. The ferries,whale watching, chater boats, and pleasure boats are all there. There are benches at the end of the wharf so that you can watch the boats come in and out. Since I am from Georgia, this entire atmosphere was fascinating. If you have questions, then the Harbormasters are very helpful.
