The Port of Oakland is pleased to sponsor free harbor tours from May through October 2017 operated by Blue & Gold Fleet. Tours are held twice monthly and each tour will last approximately 90-minutes. Visitors will learn about the Port, its operations and economic impact on the region. Harbor tours provide a unique vantage point because marine terminals are closed to the public. The excursions are a great way to give visitors a close-up look at how the Oakland seaport works. Board at the Ferry Dock at 540 Water Street (at Clay Street) in Jack London Square.
Online registration will open on the first Monday of each month at 8 pm beginning on Monday, May 1, 2017. There are 230 spaces available on each harbor tour. www.portofoakland.com/harbor-tours
