The Port of Los Angeles has partnered with live camera technology company EarthCam to provide 24/7 streaming services for its LA waterfront live camera, the port announced in early November.

Located on the roof of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, the LA waterfront live camera has replaced the port’s older web camera with an upgraded 4K camera that streams in high resolution and shares panoramic views from the center of the port’s Main Channel.

The northern view shows City of Los Angeles Fire Department Station 112, the USS Iowa, Vincent Thomas Bridge, Wilmington Clock Tower, and Everport Container Terminal. The southern view shows Terminal Island, the port’s Outer Harbor, and a portion of the San Pedro Promenade that runs along the West Harbor footprint.

“Viewers can expect to see what’s happening in Los Angeles Harbor in real-time,” the port explained in a statement. “Scenes … may include cargo and cruise ship arrivals and departures, tug, tour & fire boats and active marine wildlife.”

As upgrades to infrastructure and waterfront redevelopment at the port continue, the POLA said, the live stream can provide a look at the progress of projects reshaping the surrounding communities. 

The LA waterfront live camera can be seen via portoflosangeles.org or EarthCam.com. Viewers with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV or Android TV may also view the port’s livestream via the EarthCamTV app.
