Provincetown on November 1st. Ferry open? Weather OK?

Hi

I am planing to take the ferry from Boston to Provincetown. I am not sure if the Ferry is still open on November 1st. Also, is the weather is OK to take the ferry there? I am from west coast and looking forward to going to cape cod for one day. Any recommendation for my one day trip?

Thank you very much in advance.

Did you look at the weather report or the ferry website? Assuming you go are you getting a car because what to do is limited otherwise.

If you can rent a car, you'll see a lot more than arriving by ferry (on the weekend, not the 1st).

By the way, it is only Bay State Cruises that operates on weekends. They leave from the World Trade Center in the Seaport Area. Boston Harbor Cruises, which operates near the Aquarium, is already done for the year on its Provincetown Ferry Service.

It looks like the ferry runs through November 26th - I'm also thinking of going but a week later.

Ann a week later than Nov 1, is Wednesday Nov 8. The ferry is not running on weekdays in November. Be sure to check the schedule. At this time of year, it runs on FRI, SAT and SUN only and if you are not staying overnight, you will only have about 5 hours in Ptown, INCLUDING the time to get off and back on the boat.

Schedule between now and Nov 26:

Friday

leave Boston at 5:30pm, arrive ptown at 7:00

leave Ptown at 7:30pm, arrive Boston at 9:00

Saturday and Sunday

leave Boston 8:30am, arrive ptown at 10am

leave Ptown at 3:00pm, arrive Boston at 4:30pm
