Free boat rides at Tacoma Maritime Fest

JOHN GILLIE has the story at the Tacoma News Tribune:

The price is right for boat tours Aug. 28 at the Tacoma Maritime Fest.

Those tours of the Port of Tacoma and its many terminals are free.

The tours will be on a first-come basis from Thea’s Park at 535 Dock Street. Tours are set for 10 a.m., hygiene noon, capsule 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on a 400-passenger vessel.

The Port of Tacoma, which is offering the tours, advises those wanting to tour to arrive at least half an hour early to ensure the boat boarding process is orderly.

Parking is limited on Dock Street. Maritime Fest organizers are urging fest participants to take Link light rail to the downtown Tacoma Theater District stop. Shuttle buses will leave from there about every 20 minutes.

Directions and more information about the fest and free train rides Aug. 27 at Tacoma Rail are available at
