HOLIDAY CLOSURE – THANKSGIVING, NOV. 22 & 23 – The Port of Vancouver USA will be closed for receipt and delivery of cargo on Thursday, Nov. 22 and Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22, is an ILWU non-working Holiday. Vessel activity will be conducted as usual on Friday, Nov. 23. The administrative office will also be closed both days.
Tours of the Port of Vancouver USA are provided to the public throughout the year and include a brief overview of the port and a tour of the maritime facilities. Because the port is bustling with activity, the tour is conducted entirely from the bus. To make your reservation, call 360-693-3611 or email your name, phone number, tour date and number of guests to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The 2018 summer tour season has concluded with 10 tours and approximately 400 people visiting the port. Thank you to everyone who took time to come see what’s happening here! Check back next spring when dates are released for the 2019 tour season and sign up for early notification of the dates. We look forward to showing you marine, rail and industrial activities at the port!
