There are multiple parking lots throughout the Festival. Some of these lots fill earlier than others, but ALL lots are serviced by the FREE shuttle. Please visit our online map for shuttle stops, routes, parking options and event locations.
• Park free for up to 4 hours in most Harbor lots. Please remember, 4 hours maximum in these lots. All parking lots are monitored by Orange County Sheriff’s Department so please do check your watch when you park and keep an eye on the time. No matter where you park the FREE shuttle services all event locations.
• Special discounted parking of just $1/hour is available for this event and throughout the Festival weekends. Hop on the FREE shuttle service and take in the Festival of Whales activities and displays throughout the harbor. Hourly parking rates at Doheny State Beach are available at the numerous automated payment machine kiosks located throughout the park, or better yet through the PassportParking Mobile Pay app for smartphones and tablets. This app is available for both iPhones and Android phones (App Store and Google Play). Sign up online at https://ppprk.com/park/. The benefit of the PassportParking Mobile Pay application is in addition to making the initial payment for parking, time can also be added remotely in case you are having a great time at the harbor events and don’t want to return to the parking lot just yet to retrieve your car!
