Celebrating our 46th year of sailing to Provincetown

Celebration of History

In all of the 170 years of there being a ferry running between Boston and Provincetown, NO steamship company has been fortunate enough to have provided service longer than 26 years. Economic twists and turns and over-competition made service between Boston and Provincetown a revolving door of steamship operators since 1842. We are extraordinarily grateful to have found a way to make it to our 46th year of providing service to the great community of Provincetown.

Thank you for helping make it possible to get to this milestone. We've assembled this special section of our website to help commemorate our 46th year. Sailing between Boston and Provincetown is a great American tradition. In sailing with us, you are participating in a storied New England summer activity even older than that of baseball. We look forward to the chance of including you in the great pastime.
