Port of Olympia Cancels 2020 Tours

By Karen Robes Meeks

This week, the Port of Olympia announced the cancelation of its popular public working waterfront tours for 2020 due to COVID-19.

The free tours provide an opportunity for the public to explore and learn more about Thurston County’s shipping terminal, its equipment and its economic role.

“These are challenging times, and we had to make the tough decision to cancel the public tour program in an effort to keep our community and staff safe,” said Executive Director Sam Gibboney. “While we will not be holding the tours this year, we look forward to sharing the behind-the-scenes look of the working waterfront with citizens in 2021.”
