Ports O’Call Village is lined with an intriguing assortment of shops and restaurants to discover as you wind your way down the cobblestone pathway that follows the main channel of the Port of Los Angeles. This New England-style seaside village encompasses 15 acres of shops, restaurants and attractions. Enjoy a leisurely meal at one of the restaurants overlooking the harbor as you wave to passersby leaving on their vacation cruise.
Ports O’Call is the departure point for narrated harbor cruises, sunset dinner cruises, weekend brunch cruises, and various sport fishing boats. From January through March, whale watching cruises give visitors the chance to see California gray whales on their 6,000-mile migration from Alaska through the Catalina Channel to the waters of Baja California to bear their young. On their return trip, the calves can often be seen swimming at their mothers’ sides. San Pedro is the closest point on the Southern California coast from which to view these beautiful creatures.
Special events held annually at Ports O’Call Village include the LA Woody Car Show in May and Lobster Fest in September. Check out our events calendar for upcoming events.
From Ports O’Call, a short walk north will take you to the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, Downtown Harbor Plaza, Battleship IOWA and Fanfare Fountains & Water Feature at Gateway Plaza. In the other direction, you can visit the new craft brewery Brouwerij West, Crafted, and Cabrillo Marina Complex.
Ports O’Call Village is currently open daily with free admission and free parking. It is set to have a major makeover in the near future. See the redevelopment plans here.
