Know your port

The Alicante Port Authority launches the “Know your port” program, school visits aimed at making Secondary Education students in the province learn about port activity.

IMPORTANT: Visits postponed until further notice

The visits will be carried out by boarding one of the ships of the Kontiki company, where students will be able to see, from an incomparable setting, the facilities of the main logistics platform in the province. In addition to being able to navigate alongside the ships that operate in the port, and learn about the different measures aimed at achieving environmental responsibility and sustainability, they will be able to understand the importance of having a port of general interest in the province of Alicante.

The activity is free of charge, although the trip to the boarding area will be at the expense of the school.

The crossings will take place on the following days:

  • Friday, March 13, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Friday, March 27, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Friday, April 3, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Friday, May 8, 2020, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
  • Friday, May 15, 2020, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

A thousand places have been planned, so registrations will be attended in strict order of registration. After the summer, registrations will be re-enabled for more visits.

Boarding will take place at Pier 1, from the Kontiki Cruises base, and the journey will last approximately one hour. Check the bases of the program.

… it is not an urban port, although it is integrated into the city, it is of general interest, and it serves the province and the rest of Spain?

… by concentrating large tonnage modes of transport (train and ship), the port prevents them from dumping many tons of CO2 into the atmosphere?

… the port rewards ships that unload their waste into it, thus preventing it from dumping into the sea?

… the Port Authority takes care of the maintenance of the navigation aid signs in the province, such as lighthouses and beacons?
