Parking Permits:

Dana Point Harbor has public parking, however, there is a 4hr limit.  Violation of this limit results in a $30.00 parking ticket. Our fishing patrons are exempt from this limit, but there are a few things you need to know.  There is a new parking lot designated for our fishermen and Dana Wharf Sportfishing employees. This lot is the only place you can park in if you are going out on our boats longer than 4 hours.  In addition to parking in the correct space, you also need a permit displayed on your dashboard with the correct date stamped on it.  You can pick up a permit when you check in at our front counter.  Failure to park correctly and have the permit displayed will result in a ticket.
