SAN PEDRO, Calif.—After a two-year hiatus, the Port of Los Angeles will again offer free public boat tours of the Los Angeles Harbor on July 30.

No reservations are required and tours will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tours will depart every half-hour between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. from the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, at Sixth Street and Harbor Boulevard in San Pedro.

The tours, which include a 60-minute narration, will pass by active vessels, container terminals, and the Los Angeles Main Channel.

There will also be three "dog-friendly" boat tours at 11 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m.

The free tours will depart only from San Pedro, and not Wilmington due to construction at the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade. People can park for free along Fifth Street near Harbor Boulevard.

The free tours were halted over the past two years due to the pandemic.
