    Port Pavilion

    The Port Pavilion is a dual-purpose facility. It serves as a cruise ship terminal when the nearby B Street Cruise Ship Terminal is accommodating two ships and a third ship needs a berth.

    When no cruise visits are scheduled, the pavilion can be rented out for meetings, parties, concerts, conferences, performances or other public events. Contact us today!
