Pensacola: Downtown: Port Of Pensacola
Tracing its history back to the mid-1700s, the Port of Pensacola has evolved into northwest Florida's leading deep-water port. With its eight deep-draft berths and more than 400,000 square feet of covered storage, the Port is located on the Gulf of Mexico just 11 miles from the sea buoy. In addition to its stellar labor force and extraordinary access to international waters, the Port of Pensacola is widely regarded for its attractive rates and expertise in handling project and heavy-lift cargoes.
