There is a Parking lot reserved for folks who live on the Dock as well as guests. You however will need a temporary parking pass to park in this lot. Since Temporary Parking passes are limited – we ask that you make special requests when booking for handicapped and disabled folks only.

Best Option:

Your best bet is to use the Parking lot across the street on Harbor Island Dr. Its a Day Use only Parking lot that is ran by the Port of San Diego. There is no charge to park here. If that lot is full there are other parallel parking spots all along Harbor Island Dr.

When folks are having a wedding on Harbor Island- Parking is often Limited. Be sure to allow 10-15 minutes.

If you have lots of stuff, gear, decorations, or what have you – to drop off before your cruise starts – your best to swing by the bathrooms and small kayak rental building. Its a great place to do a gear drop and loop out. When looking at the Marina – B Dock is just to the left of the Bathroom building.
