I just love looking at the artwork on MacMillan Wharf. The boats being private and business are always a treat to watch come and go. The wharf is so relaxing.

We loved watching the sunrise, then roamed around & took photos of the fishing boats with the great reflections in the water. Late took a whale watching ride & saw wonderful whales

We felt we were immediately absorbed into the blood stream of Provincetown by the hive of activity along the wharf. There was a mixture of tourists, boat owners, taxi drivers and fisherman all mingling togeher in the daytime heat which was in the 80's.

This pier is a mixture of recreational and commercial activity. There are whale-watching trips available, together with ferries and sport-fishing trips. The whole pier is busy with all sorts of activities, and with people strolling along in the sunshine. Its a great place to people-watch.

a wonderful wharf where whale watch boats depart, the ferry to Boston comes and goes, with charter boats, tiny shops and just a great place to sit, taking in the views.

The history. The boats of all kinds. The boardwalk and little shops all fabulous. We had a great time just strolling around. A must see.

The ferries also leave from here. There are some boat charters as well plus a bit of shopping. It's more utilitarian than anything else.

We stopped here briefly while we were walking down Commercial Street. It is picturesque, with the cute little artist shops down the wharf and boats/water in the background. But there's really not that much to it.

Yes, located right beside the ferry going to Boston (very end of the pier, farthest away from the land). It was inexpensive, about $4-5 and they allow you to go in and out of your luggage.
