Port of Tacoma’s 38th Annual Free Boat Tours

Due to popular demand, the Port boat tour tickets are sold out. At this time, we are taking names for our wait list only. Use the link below to be put on the wait list for the time you’re interested in. On the day of our tours, we will have a line specifically for those folks who weren’t able to get tickets, and if there is room on the boat you will be allowed to board. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Register here for waiting list

Get a ship-side view Sunday, July 16, of trade-related jobs and monster machines at the Port of Tacoma on board a free boat tour.

During the narrated tour, visitors will see ships and marine terminals up close, cruise under the world’s largest container cranes, glimpse some of our wildlife habitat and learn about Tideflats-based businesses that boost our region’s economy.

Each person, including infants, must have a ticket to board.
