One of the best ways to learn more about the Port of Long Beach is with a close-up view from the water.
We did this tour and saw Sea Lions which we all enjoyed hearing them bark.
It is an amazing site going through the port and seeing everything. The kids will be amazed and the giant ships and machinery.
The tickets go quick, so I would be ready 5 minutes prior.
