Sec­ond chance at a ports tour

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

If you missed out on the ac­tion at SeePort week last month, there is now a sec­ond chance to get a be­hind-the-scenes look at Auck­land’s port.

Ports of Auck­land has or­gan­ised the SeePort sec­ond chance draw for one win­ner and three guests to en­joy a private ex­cur­sion through the port.

Win­ners will have a guided tour be­hind the port’s red fence, sight­see­ing around the fa­cil­ity by van. The prize also in­cludes a visit to the new con­trol and plan­ning tower and the choice of ei­ther a ride on a 5000-horse­power tug­boat or a climb up one of the port’s 100-me­tre tall con­tainer cranes.

The sec­ond chance draw comes af­ter 3000 Auck­lan­ders at­tended SeePort week, with the ma­jor­ity of tours be­ing fully booked. The num­ber was 40 per­cent higher than at­ten­dance at the in­au­gu­ral event last year.

Ports of Auck­land man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Jens Mad­sen says judg­ing by the high num­ber of vis­i­tors and feed­back forms, Auck­lan­ders have a new ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the port’s im­por­tance to the city.

“SeePort week is an an­nual event and we look for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one again next year,” says Mr Mad­sen.
