Viator is also another option for tickets; however, they are selling at full-price.

The discount isn’t huge, but sometimes an extra 10% off can still help, especially if you were going to pay full-price anyway.

Groupon also releases discount tickets every year in Mid-May, but they usually go fast. However, there are currently discount tickets from Plymouth to Provincetown starting at $36 for one round-trip ticket on Groupon if you are looking for an alternative and don’t mind the drive to Plymouth for the ferry!
