“Lots to see like gulls, ferries, crafts and a pirate museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

One can spend half a day on foot or by bike on this wharf weather & wind permitting. Plenty of booths and stands are open in high season, the Wydah Museum, and the fun of watching the gulls hanging out and the Boston ferries pulling in or slipping out.

“It's okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We visited this when we were visiting Provincetown. It was okay. There were artists shacks all along the pier. We went into a few. To me the art seemed overpriced. Don't go out of your way to visit this pier.

“FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Cute shops, great restaurants, lots to see and do! Walking the pier is fun as well, with "shack" style shops all along the pier.

“Not What It Used To Be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The wharf is not what it used to be. I can remember the fishing fleet being quite large, and they even used to have a parade and the local priest would come out and "Bless The Fleet." Although it still has some fishing boats there, it is primarily where you get the charters to go fishing or whale watching.

“Interesting artwork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The wharf was an interesting place with a number of artists shacks along the way, as well as looking at all the boats docked along the wharf.
