If its like Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale, and I'm sure it is, you aren't allowed inside the port unless you are a worker, contractor or passenger. It's due to security issues. You generally have to show your ticket to get through the gate. Homeland Security guards them.

Did you want to see the port facility itself? Or did you want to see cruise ships?

If you wanted to see the Port facility itself, like GK95 said, you wouldn't be able to get in.

And if you wanted to see cruise ships... Jacksonville isn't like Fort Lauderdale where there might be ten cruise ships in the harbor at one time.

Here, you might see one cruise ship, if the day and your timing were right. Jacksonville is not a cruise ship mecca.

If you want to see some French ships, I believe it's French week, and there are some neat reproductions downtown on the Riverwalk.
