Captains with more than 20 years of seafaring experience pilot a U.S. Coast Guard-inspected ferry across Cape Cod Bay during a 90-minute ride between Plymouth and Provincetown. Passengers take in the sights of Plymouth Harbor while listening to narration before they disembark at Provincetown’s Fisherman’s Wharf for a five-hour visit. The ferry makes the trip every weekend starting Saturday, June 16, and running through Sunday, September 16, while daily trips start Monday, June 25, and run until Monday, September 3. The ferry departs Plymouth at 10 a.m. and departs Provincetown at 4:30 p.m. See the schedule.Waterfront Enterprises
The ferry etches white waves into the rippling, blue expanse of Cape Cod Bay as it speeds away from Plymouth. From his cabin on the top deck, the captain––a licensed skipper armed with more than 20 years of seafaring experience––slides his sunglasses over his eyes to shield them from the morning sun that gilds the waters in its glittering beams. From their seats on the ferry’s sun deck or inside the enclosed cabin, passengers gaze at historic sites as they listen to a narrated history of Plymouth Harbor.
Champions of introducing visitors to the area’s storied past, Waterfront Enterprises’ crew members shepherd guests back and forth between Plymouth and Provincetown during daily three-hour roundtrips throughout the summer months. The U.S. Coast Guard-inspected ferry sidles up to Provincetown’s Fisherman’s Wharf for a five-hour stopover, granting visitors a window in which to explore the community’s abundant sights. Guests can peruse local art galleries before stopping for lunch at a restaurant or hitting the Cape Cod National Seashore to comb the beach for shells capable of broadcasting the soothing sounds of the sea or Enya. After an afternoon of wandering, sightseers hop back on the carpeted, climate-controlled ferry to return to Plymouth as evening draws near.
