Reserve a Port Boat Tour
June 5, 2006
The Port of Long Beach is increasing the number of free harbor cruises offered to the public. The Port is now hosting narrated tours twice a month through October. The 90-minute boat tours are free with advance registration through the Port’s web site.
“The best way to see the Port of Long Beach is from a boat on the water,” said Harbor Commission President Doris Topsy-Elvord. “With that in mind, we’ve expanded our public cruise program to run throughout the summer.”
The summer Port tours are scheduled on the first Saturday and third Tuesday of each month, continuing through October. Saturday tours are from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.; Tuesday tours are from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The boat tours will depart from Rainbow Harbor, near Parker’s Lighthouse at Shoreline Village in downtown Long Beach, near the Aquarium of the Pacific.
“I especially encourage people who have never been to the Port to join us for one of our tours and learn more about us,” Topsy-Elvord said.
Reservations can be made at http://www.polb.com/about/ticketreservation/default.asp
or by calling (562) 590-4121. Reservations will be accepted on a first-come basis.
With so many of the boats already fully booked, more free boat tours will be offered during the Second Annual Green Port Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 7. Check back later this summer for more details.
