How to Get to Provincetown

Provincetown is an ideal getaway, precisely because it's on the road to nowhere. Situated at the very end of a penninsula, surrounded by sand and water, it's remote. We like it that way.

Though we can't guarantee you'll ever want to leave, we can help you get here:

By Ferry

Approach Provincetown like the Pilgrims did... by sea! 

Two companies operate fast ferries from Boston to Provincetown, which is about a 90-minute journey.
