Teesport Industry Experience

Teesport Industry Experience is a unique programme which runs throughout the year, aimed at both our education and business members, providing a unique tour of Teesport and River Trip up the Tees.


Length: 0.5 days
Frequency: Multiple times throughout the year
Number: 8 per trip
Sector: N/A
Delivered by: PD Ports, Tees Bay Pilots.
Sponsored by: PD Ports.
Fulfils Gatsby Guidelines: 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7


All education and industry member companies are invited to join a unique half day river trip along the Tees to understand the industry and businesses up and down the Tees and surrounding the port. Our Teesport Industry Experience helps those on board gain insight and knowledge of career opportunities and skills requirements to take back into their schools and business to educate and inspire. As part of the river trips our members will have the opportunity to visit the Harbour Office to hear about the day-to-day management of the river from the Harbour Master and the Tees Bay Pilots, followed by an introduction from a High Tide Trustee and a trip along the River Tees.

“It was an amazing opportunity to meet the harbour master and his team and learn about the management of the river. This has been so educational, not only to the students but also the teachers as I myself had no idea of what really went on down here. This is great knowledge that I can take back with me and share with the other students.”


All our programmes are FREE to our education and business members. If you are a school in Teesside and you’re interested in becoming a member and applying for any of our programmes then please get in touch with the High Tide team on 01642 233 597, drop us an email at or complete our enquiry form.
