Long Beach – Los Angeles Harbor is the largest and busiest commercial harbor in the world!
This is America’s Port!
During our amazing Long Beach – Los Angeles Harbor Cruise you will see gigantic container ships that are here from all over the world and real world commercial fishing boats. We will also take you to see a piece of living history, the famous “USS Iowa.” You will get an up-close and unique vantage of this amazing ship. Based out of Long Beach, the harbor cruise will also allow you to see the famous “Los Angeles Ports O’ Call Village,” The Vincent Thomas Bridge, The Angels Gate Light House and so much more!
All tours are private and personal with your family and your friends. This is not a cattle boat cruise, packed in with standing room only! The Island Trader is fully Insured and license by the US Coast Guard. We treat you like family and take pride showing you the beauty of the harbor area, the historic sites and measure our success by your enjoyment. Every Harbor Cruise is a little different each time we go out, we work to make each one unique and special. Please note, all Long Beach – Los Angeles Harbor Tour Cruises are limited to six passengers due to Coast Guard regulations.
Always investigate the experience of the Captain of the charter vessel that you choose! Small licensed captain’s generally have minimal time at sea and NO commercial experience. Ask for a resume and credible maritime references. Captain Chuck Brown is real open water Unlimited Able Seaman and 200 GRT 500 ITC Tonnage Master, he has thousands of days at sea with real Blue Water and commercial experience!
