  Once you find your way to 22nd Street Landing, the rest is pretty easy.

  You'll enter into the Parking Lot where "22nd Street Landing Bar & Grill" is to Unload your Gear.  Note there is a Sign at the entrance stating Parking is limited to 2 Hours and is for Restaurant Patrons Only.  Yes, they're Serious and you will be towed if you park there all day - So, to stay out of trouble, just veer right into the Parking Lot and circle around to the Loading / Unloading spaces in front of the Bar & Grill.  (The Spaces are shown Below).

  You are allowed 30 minutes to Unload / Load, but take into account that with several dive & Fishing boats leaving each day and an average of 30 passengers per boat - there will be a lot of people waiting behind you to do the same. 

Please be Courteous and move your vehicle right away

  Parking for the full day is across the Street - See "Parking" below for tips & Suggestions.

When you Enter Parking Lot You'll  Circle around and unload Near Dock

Several Spots are Shown Here for Loading and Unloading Dive Gear

Be Polite to Other Divers needing to Load or Unload - 30 Minutes?  Try fewer.

This is the Short Walk to the Dock  - Picture taken from Loading Area

  Parking is normally plentiful - even on weekends. When you exit the 2 Hour Parking Area next to The Docks you can find all day Parking directly across the street (These are the "Prime" Parking Spaces) or just down the road.  Either Way, You'll need to turn Right onto 22nd Street when you exit the lot to enter either Parking Area.

If the Lot across the street is full, don't worry, there's a ton of Parking a half block down the Street.  The walk is a little longer, but just think of how good the exercise is!

  As common sense should dictate, a gentle reminder to lock your car and keep valuables out of view or with you.  Although it is rare, we've had a few Car break-ins over the years when we've had groups out for the day.

View as you Leave Loading Area back onto 22nd street.  Turn Right to find Parking for the Day
