An exclusive tour of one of the world’s premier seaports on the historic Mauretania Yacht

Long Beach Harbor

Join ULI Los Angeles for an exclusive tour of one of the world’s premier seaports! Learn about latest port improvements from project experts while enjoying a harbor boat tour on the beautiful historic Mauretania Yacht, first launched in 1947.

The Port is working on a decade-long, $4.5 billion Capital Improvement Program including the new Middle Harbor Container Terminal and the replacement for the aging Gerald Desmond Bridge. The Port of Long Beach is one of the world’s premier seaports, a trail blazer in goods movement and environmental stewardship. Each year, trade valued at more than $140 billion moves through the Port of Long Beach, supporting more than 30,000 jobs in Long Beach, 316,000 throughout Southern California, and 1.4 million jobs in the United States.

The port of Long Beach is the second-busiest seaport in the United States. Everything from clothing and shoes to toys, furniture and consumer electronics arrives at the Port before making its way to store shelves throughout the country. Specialized terminals also move petroleum, automobiles, cement, lumber, steel and other products. And with a Green Port Policy guiding all efforts, the Port is a catalyst for innovative programs to protect the environment.

With a Green Port Policy guiding efforts to minimize or eliminate negative environmental impacts, the Port is a catalyst for innovative environmental programs. Serving as a model for ports around the world, the Port of Long Beach pioneered programs dedicated to improving air quality more quickly and aggressively than has ever been attempted by any seaport, anywhere in the world.
