The Jacksonville Port Authority recently announced they’ll offer monthly bus tours to the public of its largest cargo area, this in celebration of the ports 50th anniversary.
According the Jacksonville Business Journal, tours will be scheduled on the fourth Wednesday of each month throughout 2013. Seating is limited and registration begins on the first day of the month.
Tour participants will have a window-side presentation and view of the companies operating at Jaxport’s 754-acre Blount Island Marine Terminal.
Commercial use of Jacksonville’s port dates back nearly 500 years. But 50 years ago, a special act of the Florida Legislature created the Jacksonville Port Authority to develop, maintain and market port facilities.
The first 50th anniversary bus tour is scheduled for Jan. 23 at 9:45 a.m. All participants must pre-register and bring required identification. Click here to register.
For cruise passengers to take part of this they would have to do a pre-cruise stay in Jacksonville as there aren’t any Wednesday embarkations on Carnival Fascination, only Thursday, Saturday and Monday.
