Close-up look at the port
Aucklanders can get a top-notch view of behind-the-scenes of their port this month.
During the third annual SeePort event, double-decker bus tours will give visitors a close-up look at what goes on behind the red fence at Ports of Auckland.
SeePort runs over 10 days from October 9 to October 18.
Ports of Auckland managing director Jens Madsen says the tours will be led by port staff with many years of experience.
“This is a great chance to get behind the red fence and see a close-up view of port operations, including the biggest ‘boys toys’ in the country – our cranes, straddles and visiting international ships.”
The free tours will run every day at 10am, noon and 2pm.
In previous years the SeePort events have been fully booked with more than 3000 people attending last year.
