Vancouver’s Cruise Ship terminal is right in the middle of downtown. Which is great for access and walkability but may provide some parking challenges. This post has everything you need to know about parking at Vancouver cruise terminal including rates, rules and nearby cheap parking options.
Parking at Vancouver Cruise Terminal
The long term parking at the Vancouver cruise terminal is in Canada Place. It has very recently (mid August 2022) changed management companies so some parking things have changed. It has been taken over by Indigo.
Canada Place and the Indigo parking facility is located at the North end of Howe Street at Canada Place and is accessible 24 hours per day from the Canada Place entrance.
Canada Place is not just Vancouver cruise port parking. It is a mixed-use facility. It is used by the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre East, the Pan Pacific Hotel, Port Metro Vancouver Cruise Ship Terminal, Fly Over Canada (one of the best things to do in Vancouver I might add), and the World Trade Centre Office Complex.
Vancouver Cruise Terminal Parking Fees
The Vancouver cruise terminal parking fees are in the image below. For a 7 day cruise we paid $247 after all of the taxes.
Short-term Rates for Canada Place Cruise Parking (including taxes):
$4.00 each half-hour or portion
$23.00 day maximum (6am – 6pm)
$9.00 evening maximum (6pm – 6am)
$32.00 daily maximum (6am – 6am)
$55.00 to park until noon next day
The short term rates obviously would not apply to those of us taking a cruise, but if you were having someone come to meet you who wanted to park, this is what it would cost to park at Canada Place.
The Vancouver cruise ship terminal parking can be reserved in advance. It is probably easiest on the Indigo App.
Important things to Note about Crusie Parking Vancouver:
VANCOUVER CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL PARKING ADDRESS: 999 Canada Place Vancouver, BC V6C 3E1

Note that the cruise ship passenger disembarkation pickup point is in the Canada Place parking lot. If you are going to pick up passengers, make sure you are not overweight or you will not be able to get into the lot. There is nowhere to pull over and pick up passengers on the street. There is hotel valet and taxi stopping only.
