“Parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

During pre season...$6 flat rate. If you leave and come back later in the day just show your receipt. Ample parking. During peak season it fills up fast and then there is a hourly rate.

“A Great Stroll & Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

A walk on the pier is a great way to blend new and old. At the end of the wharf is a still very active fishing fleet and lobster boats representing old and historic P'town. If you are lucky enough to be here in late June you will be treated to the Blessing of the Fleet and the Portuguese Festival. The ferries for Boston leave from the right side of the pier.
The pier is lined with numerous kiosks that house shops, art galleries and ticket booths for charter fishing and whale watches. It also affords you a panoramic view of the town and it's quaint skyline. Sunrise can be seen rising over the dunes of Truro and sunset behind the town!
Few things are more spectacular then the full moon rising and the moon river across the harbor. Day or night it is worth the walk!

“Good location for taking Whale Watch boats”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Best place to view and photograph Provincetown harbor without being on a boat. Otherwise, it's just a wharf. Parking at the foot of the wharf is the largest single lot in PTown, and normally fills up by mid morning every day.

“A Taste of P-town History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

So, this is where you go when you want the real feel of P-town as it was years ago. You can walk the entire Wharf down to the end where all the fishing boats rest. One of my favorite things to do at night after a great meal is to walk along the Wharf and watch the lights of the town shining along the shoreline. During the day it's a lively place where one can rent a boat or enjoy a whale watch. Just an enjoyable place to walk and enjoy some P-town fishing history. Enjoy beautiful sunsets from this area.
