The Port offers guided bus tours of its marine facilities to community, educational and business groups with a specific interest in marine trade, as time and staffing permits.
Unfortunately, we do not offer tours to individuals or young children. Most marine tours last from 2-3 hours. We also offer limited tours of Portland International Airport (PDX) and our business parks. Due to federal security law and safety issues, access is restricted at the marine terminals and beyond the security checkpoints at PDX.
We can tailor a tour to your specific interests, so for more information, please e-mail us or call us at 503.415.6051.
For more than 100 years, the Port of Portland has moved people and products from the Pacific Northwest to the world beyond. The Port has a vital role in creating and maintaining connections. Whether by train, ship or plane, these connections are a critical component to sustaining and expanding our community’s ties to the world.
Invite a Port speaker to your organization’s next meeting to learn more about how your daily life is affected by the Port’s activities. A Port speaker can discuss many connections, including aviation and seaport activities, as well as environmental stewardship and economic development. Speakers can be scheduled for just about any time or day. For scheduling purposes, we ask that you please submit your request no later than two weeks prior to the date of your meeting.

The Port of Portland Commission is a public body and recognizes the value of citizen involvement. We welcome public input and comments at our meetings. Comments on agenda topics or other issues can be submitted in writing or verbally at monthly meetings.
The Port Commission usually meets the second Wednesday of every month, from 9:30 a.m. to approximately 11:00 a.m., in the Commission Boardroom of the Port of Portland Building, 7200 N.E. Airport Way. Occasionally, the time and place of a Commission meeting is changed, so please check the meeting agenda on the Port’s website to be sure of location and time. Agendas are posted the Friday before each Commission meeting.
At Port Commission meetings, public comment may be heard by the Commission on each agenda or public discussion item, at a time specified by the presiding officer of the Commission. Due to time constraints, the presiding officer may also limit the time allotted for each speaker. Some Commission items are regularly scheduled for public hearing and comment. People who wish to comment at a Commission meeting may sign up at the beginning of the meeting.
