Port Tours Are Back

March 28, 2013

Get a rare view of the Port's operations, construction projects and environmental initiatives on free narrated boat and train tours May through October.

The 90-minute harbor tours give the public an opportunity to see the Port by boat. Tours begin at 10 a.m. the first and third Saturdays of each month and at 2 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. Sunset tours, which offer a look at the lighted shipping terminals, begin at 7:30 p.m. the fourth Thursday of each month. 

Reservations open at 8 a.m. Monday, April 1 for the May tours. 
 
The Port's train tours return Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 with multiple tours both days. The one-hour narrated tours offer guests a view of cargo-moving operations and the Port’s rail network in areas that generally are off limits to the public. Trains play a crucial role in Port operations, moving nearly 75 percent of imports shipped through the Port.

Reservations can be made beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, May 6.

Seats for all tours can be reserved at www.polb.com/porttours beginning at 8 a.m. the first Monday of each month, one month in advance of the tours.

Space is limited and seating goes fast. If space is available, click the "Register" button to make a reservation; if a tour is full, click "Join Waiting List" to be added to the waiting list. Those who are on standby will be notified by phone if space becomes available.
