Free Harbor Tours at Oakland

By Karen Robes Meeks

See the Port of Oakland up close with a free harbor tour, which will take place from May to October.

“Port of Oakland harbor tours allow us to connect directly with the communities that we serve,” said Port of Oakland Director of Social Responsibility Amy Tharpe. “The harbor tours are also a way of saying thank you to our community for supporting the work that we do.”

Reservations are needed to take advantage of the 90-minute narrated tours aboard the Blue and Gold Fleet. Ticket registration begins May 7 for the two May cruises. The first harbor tour is slated for May 11. Registration will take place the first Monday of each month for that month's tours.
