Port Tour Reservations Open Monday

Free June excursions by boat, rail offer close-up look

May 1, 2013

 

Get a rare view of the Port's operations, construction projects and environmental initiatives on free, narrated harbor and train tours coming up in June. Reservations open online 8 a.m. Monday, May 6, and are expected to go fast.
 
The Port’s popular train tours return Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 with multiple trips both days. The one-hour narrated rides 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.

The 90-minute harbor tours -- which will continue through October -- 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 can be made beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, May 6, for the rail and the boat tours in June. Go to www.polb.com/porttours.
 
Space is limited and seating goes fast, especially for the harbor tours. 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 if space becomes available.
