Ride / Park
Getting to and getting around the Dana Point Festival of Whales has never been easier!
The Festival’s FREE shuttle gets you to each every event location – just hop on board at any shuttle stop and get off when you reach your destination. Get on and off as many times as you like – it’s FREE! The shuttle runs every day of the Festival from 10 AM – 4 PM. Please refer to the Festival EVENT MAP for quick and easy reference to all shuttle stops. Programs with a pull out map are available on board the shuttle and throughout the Harbor or refer to our smartphone app available for download through the Apple iPhone and Android app stores.
After a six-year absence, whales once again don the walkways of Doheny State Beach. This is just part of the beauty you can experience when parking at Doheny State Park where the Festival’s FREE shuttle services the area approximately every 15 minutes. PARK and RIDE and migrate with the whales!
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.
• Park free for up to 4 hours in most Harbor lots. Please remember, 4 hours maximum in these lots.
• Park at Doheny State Park ALL day for only $8
