Information for Ship Crew Members

San Pedro welcomes ship crew members

Welcome Ship Crew Members!

We’re glad to have you visit San Pedro and want you to have a great time here.

And why not plan some extra time before or after your cruise to explore San Pedro, Hollywood, and Catalina Island? It's great for a day or several.

There are many ways to get around San Pedro and we’re conveniently located to get all around Southern California.

A free trolley usually runs from the Cruise Terminal to Downtown, Ports O’ Call, and other stops on weekends.

You’ll find details about transportation options and maps on this page

Around town we have the DASH bus system. To Long Beach, you can take the 142 line of Commuter Express, which ends at the Downtown Long Beach Transit Center.

From the Transit Center you can catch the Blue Line light rail to Downtown Los Angeles or get a bus to Long Beach, Orange County, Torrance, and many other destinations.
