The Port of Los Angeles is America's Port® the busiest container port in the nation. The furniture and electronics in your home, the car you drive, and the clothing and shoes that you wear most likely came through the Port of Los Angeles!


The Port of Los Angeles provides free one-hour educational boat tours to school groups (fourth grade through college) to demonstrate the dynamics of world trade. There is nothing like the experience of pulling up next to a massive containership as it unloads hundreds of containers, or seeing KidsWavingToSealthe world's largest container facility that, at nearly 500 acres, is three times the size of Disneyland, and sits on a manmade island built from Catalina Island stones and material dredged from the bottom of our channels.


The Port of Los Angeles is the leading economic engine for Southern California and the nation. It's known for record-setting cargo operations, groundbreaking environmental initiatives, progressive security measures, diverse recreational and educational facilities and the emerging LA Waterfront.
