In honor of JAXPORT's 50th Anniversary, JAXPORT is organizing free tours of the port throughout 2013. Tours are free, open to the public and limited to the first 49 people who register for each event. The first tour is scheduled for Jan. 23, 2013.
Tour participants will have a window-side presentation and view of the companies operating at JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal, a 754-acre modern maritime facility and JAXPORT’s largest marine terminal. A JAXPORT tour guide will lead the tour on board the bus.
