Los Angeles Maritime Institute Directions

Near our dock is the San Pedro Fish Market Restaurant and they have a street address: 1190 Nagoya Way, San Pedro 90731 that can be put in to map programs on people's phones. That is where our ships are usually located at Berth 78.  

Building G and our office are across the parking lot towards the commercial fishing docks at Berth 73. The office is in the same building that Utro's Café restaurant is located.  Utro’s lists their address as 73 Berth, San Pedro CA 90731 so that may work on some people's phones.  We will be holding the workshops in Building G right across from our office at Berth 73.
