We highly enjoyed our nice trip to Provincetown on the Plymouth to Provincetown Express Ferry. We had comfy seats thankfully because it was very hot & humid. The day trip is just perfect because you have plenty of time to view P-Town and get some breakfast or lunch and maybe an ice cream later in the day. All shop keepers... More

Wonderful way to travel to Ptown. It was fully booked but not crowded so the trip was very pleasant. Nice crew, lousy coffees (bring your own), varied options for seating, and punctual departures and arrivals. Used a Groupon so was a reasonable price.

Lovely day on the water made more interesting with well narrated trip of the coastline, habitat and hands on experiences with wildlife crew. Crew helpful, friendly and knowledgeable of the area and marine life, also good historical knowledge. Kept ferry well picked up and clean though it was packed! P-town was jammed with tourists, but managed a delightful lunch before... More

We had a splendid day to take this ferry ride. Friendly crew and staff that made the 90 minute ride fun . If the weather is good ride on the top deck and you might see some whales

Since my husband and I have been to Plymouth several times, we have seen or done most everything there is to do. Therefore, we decided to take the Plymouth to Provincetown Express Ferry to do something different. We were pleased that they allow leashed dogs on board. The ride was smooth and 1 1/2 hours in length. The fee is... More

Terrible customer service. We purchased a Groupon and made reservations. There were 6 of us, they could not find the reservation and claimed the boat was full. It did not appear to be full and they would not accommodate us. Other people at the dock had the exact same problem. I am waiting to see if Groupon will refund our... More

I was going to Provincetown for an overnight but really didn't want to drive in (the traffic can be horrendous in the summer). I looked at ferries in/out of Boston, but they were almost twice as much, & the parking costs are high. Now, this ferry service doesn't seem to be set up for overnight stays in P-town, it took...

The Ferry from Plymouth to P-Town is a nice boat ride. Interns from a wildlife org give info about the barrier islands outside the harbor. Plus, explain about the different whales you might see on the trip over (though doubtful they come close). However, on the trip I was on, we were lucky to see a deer paddling beside our... More
