Port of LA to Offer Harbor Tours

By Karen Robes Meeks

As part of World Trade Week, the Port of Los Angeles will host free one-hour harbor boat tours on May 19.

The narrated tours, which will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., will leave from Banning’s Landing Community Center in Wilmington and the Los Angeles Maritime Museum in San Pedro every 30 minutes. No need for reservations.

There will also be the popular “Waves ‘n Woofs” boat tours, pet-friendly tours for owners and their leashed dogs that will leave at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. from both locations.

“The port is proud to offer harbor boat tours, which offer the public a unique opportunity to learn about the logistics and operations of North America's premier gateway for international commerce” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “It’s also a great way to see the progress that has been made along the LA Waterfront.”

The Los Angeles Maritime Museum is at 600 Sampson Way, Berth 84, in San Pedro. Banning’s Landing Community Center is at 100 E. Water St. in Wilmington.
