About MacMillan Wharf
Located forty miles out to sea at the tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is one of the world’s natural deep-water harbors ~ a refuge for boats of all sizes, large and deep enough to welcome cruise ships. Provincetown has always taken its life from the sea, but it’s the harbor that has defined our history (Pilgrims First Landing – 1620), our Portuguese fishing heritage, and reputation as a world-class tourist destination.

MacMillan Pier is Provincetown’s major transportation hub — ferries from Boston bring tens of thousands of people here seasonally, and excursions of all types depart daily to explore the Harbor, the National Seashore, and Stellwagen National Marine Sanctuary.

About Provincetown Harbor
A historic fishing port, Provincetown is situated at the tip of Cape Cod in an area of spectacular natural beauty, surrounded by miles of dunes and beaches. Provincetown has a diverse and singular history. The Pilgrims first landed in Provincetown in 1620 and signed the Mayflower Compact, a declaration of self-determination and radical thought that characterizes the history and people of Provincetown, even today. Provincetown has been home to sailors, pirates, anglers, painters, and authors for centuries. In the nineteenth century, Provincetown, with the largest and safest natural harbor on the New England coast, was one of the greatest and busiest seaports in the country. The rich texture of cultural and social influences has produced a sense of place that is uniquely Provincetown. For over a century, these special qualities have attracted artists, tourists, and bohemians who have then blended with the local population and produced a unique community character. Provincetown is truly like nowhere else. MacMillan Pier is a short walk to all that the Town has to offer, such as retail shops, museums, restaurants, theaters, and art galleries.
