Port of Long Beach Tours

Happy Sunday! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I shared earlier this week how we’re already planning our summer outings. One outing that will be on our list is the Free Port of Long Beach Tours. The Port of Long Beach will be offering one  hour and a half harbor tours four times a month. The tours will run from May thru September. You have to make a reservation and the tickets fill up quickly,  so please mark your calendars. You can register for June tickets tomorrow morning.  There are 2 Saturday morning tours on the 1st and 3rd of the month from 10am to 11:30 am. There are also two sunset tours on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 7pm to 8:30pm.

Here is what you have to do:

1. Visit this page on the first Monday of the month from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the following month’s tours and click on the link.

2. Fill out the short form and indicate which date you are interested in and how many people you’re registering for (up to 4). Due to high demand, there is a limit of one tour date per registrant.

3. All those who register will be entered in a lottery for the tour date selected. Within 48 hours, registrants will receive an email either confirming a reservation or indicating a position on the wait list. If you do not receive an email, please check your spam folder before e-mailing or phoning.

That’s it! It’s a fun tour and perfect for the entire family. For additional information head here.

I love sharing outing with the family that won’t cost an arm or a leg. When it involves absolutely no money, it makes me want to run and write a post and share about it ASAP. I shared about this a few years ago and then the tours stopped for a couple of year, but now they’re back for another year.

The Port of Long Beach will be offering hour and a half harbor tours four times a month. The tours will run from April thru September. You have to make a reservation and the tickets fill up quickly so please mark your calendars.
