Boston By Boat

A special project of Save the Harbor/Save the Bay

Seasonal Ferries

In addition to the year-round commuter boats, seasonal ferry services serve specific routes during the warmer months.

The Salem Ferry operates from late May to early November, leaving from Blaney Street in Salem and arriving at Long Wharf in Boston.

Provincetown: The Bay State Cruise Co offers fast ferry service from the Seaport World Trade Center to Fisherman's Wharf in Provincetown 7 days a week from mid May to mid October, and an 'excursion' ferry service on weekends.

Provincetown: Boston Harbor Cruises offers fast ferry service from Long Wharf in Boston to MacMillan Wharf in Provincetown several days a week in May and every day from June to early October.
