Parking at Vancouver Cruise Terminal

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:


OVERSIZE VEHICLES: The Canada place Parking lot does not fit oversized vehicles. The Max height for vehicles using the lot is 6’9″

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.

Where To Stay Near Cruise Ship Parking

If you are driving in the night before your cruise, there are several hotels that are close by. The closest is the Pan Pacific.

  1. Vancouver is a bustling city with a thriving transportation network, and parking at the Vancouver terminal is an important consideration for travelers and commuters alike. Whether you’re catching a flight, boarding a cruise ship, or taking a ferry, having a convenient and secure parking option can make your journey much smoother. Here’s some information about parking at the Vancouver terminal.

  2. We are looking for parking from 27th August to 3rd September. I contacted Indigo and they tell me their long term parking is full for these dates and we will need to park in the day facility and chance it as it is a first come first serve basis and it is $55 per day. That is outrageous. I have been doing some searching on the internet and cannot seem to find any other parking in the area. Does anyone have any tips for us? We live in BC and this is why we will be driving to Vancouver to get on the cruise ship.
