Summer sea, a lot of people wants to sail to Provincetown. The company had an extra ferry this morning. Both boats filled up. Comf and easy sailing, 1.5 hour. Snack bar with drinks onboard.

Took the 90 minute fast ferry to Ptown. Everything was clean and the staff was friendly. The only complaint is how expensive it is. $190 for two people is a big high, but beats the long drive.
