Planning a Trip to P-Town on the Fast Ferry
There’s a good reason that Provincetown, or P-Town, is the most popular destination on Cape Cod. With endless options for shopping, dining, and outdoor activities, there is truly something for everyone. Captain John Boats’ P-Town Ferry is the best way to enjoy a day in this popular vacation spot. Here is what you need to know about planning your trip.
Arrive on Time
There is one P-Town Ferry per day leaving the State Pier in Plymouth. The ferry heads to P-Town at 10 AM, arriving there at 11:30 AM, and then departs P-Town at 4:30 PM to arrive back in Plymouth at 6:30 PM. The ferry departs on time, so be sure to arrive promptly. We recommend getting to the State Pier in Plymouth at least 60 minutes before the departure, so you have ample time to park, get tickets, and board the ferry. Both round-trip and one-way tickets can be purchased online in advance, which can save you some time on the day of your trip.
Take Advantage of the Onboard Amenities
The ferry is equipped with clean restrooms for the one-and-a-half hour journey. There is also full galley service on board, with hot and cold beverages as well as pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, and snacks. Alcoholic beverages are also available for purchase. Keep in mind that it is against state law to bring your own alcohol on board.
Research the Area in Advance
There is so much to do in P-Town that you could miss some of the top spots without a little planning. The ferry docks at MacMillian Wharf, and from there you can access everything from shopping to beaches, including Race Point Ocean Beach, which is recognized as one of the world’s best beaches.
