Introduction:

Provincetown is located behind the distinctive hook of Cape Cod at its northern end on Cape Cod Bay. This is the site where the original Pilgrims actually landed in 1620, but as they had no rights to the land, they ended up moving westward to modern-day Plymouth.

Inside the breakwaters at Provincetown you will find a wide variety of marinas and marine services including a well-maintained mooring field. Ashore there are vacation condos, beaches and a variety of shops and historic sites to visit. Provincetown is also home to a large gay and lesbian community, and holiday events swell the town's population, sometimes threefold.


Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Charts 13246 and 13249.

From the Atlantic Ocean north of Race Point and Provincetown itself, pick up flashing red whistle buoy "2PH," and then set a course for red and white Morse (A) buoy "RP" off of Race Point. Race Point has its name for a reason; during strong northeast or southeast winds, currents in the area rip (race) past the point at great speed. During these conditions, you will want to keep an eye on your location relative to land and to the next mark.

Once you have cleared Race Point, begin a southeasterly course toward flashing green bell buoy "1, " where you will head to the northeast toward quick flashing green bell buoy "3," at the end of Long Point. For better night navigation, Wood End and Long Point both have large fixed lights that assist you in from Cape Cod Bay.

At flashing green bell buoy "3," you will turn farther north to flashing red "4," or flashing green "5," which mark the Provincetown west and east breakwater ends, respectively. Inside the breakwaters are a variety of marine services, most of the congregated right behind the breakwaters at the town dock. Moorings are situated on either side of the town dock in 13 feet of water.


Local Notices to Mariners:

Local Notices to Mariners are available online from the U.S. Coast Guard.


Transportation:

The Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority offer "Flex" bus service to and from Provincetown down to Wellfleet at the bottom end of Cape Cod.
