Long Beach Opens Harbor Tour Reservations

The Port of Long Beach has opened reservations for its 2012 series of free harbor tours.

Reservations for the annual tour series began April 2 and continue through September. The 90-minute excursions are held from May through October on the first and third Saturday of the month and the second Tuesday and fourth Thursday of the month.

Online reservations open up at 8 a.m. on the first Monday of each month for tours the following month. In April, reservations can be made for the May tours, followed by June tour reservations on May 7, July tours on June 4, and so on. Seating is limited.

The port says that new elements are being added to the tour program this year, including special evening tours from 7 pm to 8:30 pm on the fourth Thursday of each month; and a special “social media” tour exclusively for the port’s Facebook and Twitter followers.
