$55 for a Roundtrip Ticket to the Provincetown Fast Ferry ($85 Value)

The Provincetown Fast Ferry, named the Salacia, is a passenger-only catamaran that shuttles sea-goers from Boston to P-Town and back on a jaunt full of sea breezes and onboard amenities. Powered by Caterpillar marine engines and Rolls Royce water jets, the ferry can reach speeds of up to 40 knots, or 45 miles per hour, dropping crew and passengers off at the Cape in a quick 90 minutes. Once there, visitors can enjoy all of the Cape’s local shops, sights, and restaurants. Tickets for children younger than 3 years old are $30 and should be purchased separately by phone, online, or in person. See the full schedule here.

Boston Harbor Cruises

At the age of 16, Matthew "Matty" Hughes became the youngest-ever licensed captain in the port of Boston. Funneling his passion into a career, he founded Boston Harbor Cruises in 1926 to lead tours up the Charles River. What began as a two-man, one-boat operation has grown tremendously throughout its more than 90-year history, now encompassing a 21-boat fleet and more than 250 employees who transport more than 2 million passengers.

The Boston Harbor Cruises's staff handles all things nautical, from whale watching and speedboat tours to wedding receptions and celebrations for special occasions. Because dolphins are hard to saddle and refuse to obey verbal commands, Boston Harbor Cruises also navigates the waters with ferries and harbor cruises that explore the historic and romantic sights of Boston.

Though the leadership has changed, Matty's grandchildren Rick and Chris Nolan still perpetuate the traditions of Boston Harbor Cruises, furthering one man's obsession with the harbor and inspiring future generations to create their own memories on its calm waters.

Reviews

The ferry left exactly at 9am (good thing we weren't late!) and was a beautiful, relatively smooth, quick 90-minute to Provincetown.
